Default Re: Real vibration resolution...shaft drive.

George belt drive doesnt do away with vibration from a motor on a m/c but gives it a smoother and quieter ride, a well tuned multicylinder m/c will purr like a kitten nowadays. The japanese cured that long ago. This doesnt apply to single cylinder motors however thats why they call them thumpers. In a single cylinder motor theres nothing to counter act the vibrations of the one cylinder......anyways changing a flat on a drive shaft m/c is one huge pain in the arse. Check out this belt driven trek bicycle.......Trek Bikes | Bikes | Urban | District
