Yeah I wondered about gears .. but I guess I was thinking that they're probably trying to improve over what's currently available.ViennaHog said:Gears inside.............
I fully agree, a nice solution to a problem that was solved previously and completely with the gear drive.LAF said:I just don't get it?
You are replacing 3 tensioner shoes with 1 and a belt.
If you are going to mess with it why would you choose this over the POSITIVE and PRECISE set up of gears?
I already got one belt too many as it is. I have seen MANY belts jump a tooth in my lifetime.
I trust a chain and a sprocket a he## of a lot further then ANY belt.
What is the perceived advantage, even over stock, other then quietness ?
Well if I was going to change from gears to something else, it would be back to the stock setup.bigal51 said:If it turns out to be reliable and no problems with the belt, I would be interested. I have gears now and they are a little noisy, I could hear my radio better
I run stock parts and it's amazing how many people took their cams, chains and tensioners out at zero miles. I've now got 4 sets of 0 mile stock cams with 2 sets of new chains and sprockets. I got them free with cylinders and cam plates that I bought. Guess I won't be running out any time soon.LAF said:Well if I was going to change from gears to something else, it would be back to the stock setup.
Sell the geared cams and gears and that would more than cover your cost of new chain driven cams, and I am sure there are a bunch of stock chains and sprockets that people would give you, or sell dirt cheap.
Don't get me wrong I am sure there is merit here as this man is a very smart cookie. I run the shitz out of his cams. And this is a very nice and slick looking unit.
I just am missing it unless it is purely a noise issue. If that is it, then it on one side, and another on the primary side and you would loose a lot of noise for sure, including those hard to comprehend harmonics that exist on these "simple" machines.
Me, I listen to a lot of noise on my bike, but gear whine or primary chain slap are not two of them.
