Re: rear suspension
Yeah my mt clutches always chatter. I think it's just the name of the game with these cheapos. There is a thread by greaser monkey where he experimented with heavier weights and a heavier spring and I think it made it better. I don't mind the chatter much, it's a bit annoying but it doesn't last long. When the 2nd gear clutch chatters I just ease off the gas to let it shift and all is good.
The belt clutch is good I think. I did one in an early trans test on my bike. The main thing is to have belt guides so that when you are in neutral it disengages completely.
I don't always listen to Alice in Chains..... but when I do, SO DO THE NEIGHBORS
