Vespa 108mm pulley cheecks

Chris Carleton /

This on a Boxer. Loving it but belt is kinda noisy slapping metal on subframe. Gonna try a piece of teflon under bottom of belt should work will see if there's friction between rubber and teflon. Anyone doing or done this?

You gotta do something, you're going to start frying belts like that.

Also, I rode that bike as a single speed and I totally would have just left it SS and rocked it. Ye Olde Classique Boxer

No harm done as it is a big heavy bike and I'd rather not have vehicles crawling up my ass in traffic.

Dude that’s sick. Won’t happen on a ciao. All I could fit was the 100mm.

The frame structure would be gone after all the cutting. What about bending the fuck out of it? Does that work?

So you weld then its possible. I modded a Ciao to accept the 108mm pulleys. Pics to follow.

Have you ridden that clutch yet? I was curious how those scooter clutch arms worked out.

It’s bonkers how well it works. The issue if it all is because I don’t have the trailing end of the arm digging into the bell first, the stall speeds higher. A setup where the trailing edge digs in first, like stock pads or starter shoes required more spring. The lightest spring I could find was a stock grande spring. It’s so nice starting with the weakest springs and working your way up. I have yet to go up though. I was going to flip shoes and make another clutch but it works so well as is it would be a huge waste of another stock clutch for experimenting.
