I am getting a lot of slippage from my friction drive on rainy days and am considering a belt drive kit that will be motor swappable. I get busted spokes often on the friction drive when slamming a bump of other street defect. Are belt drives better in the rain? I am confident that they are but would like a testimonial before I fetch some cash for these. Treaking my throttle to turtle speed on post rain wet roads is misery.
If 1 or more spokes pop will that effect my wheel pulley? So far with my friction drive the only bad flaws have been my clutch and the little nut and bolt that hold up the supports. I guess the drive roller is smoother but it still works fine.
