Sure why not.No!
This is worse!
Would you ever fly in an airplane made by Harley -Davidson!?
lol, while I concur, the belts are made by Goodyear or Gates. Harley doesn't actually make much of anything, they are simply a brand that slaps their name on stuff and double or triples the price.i wouldnt dare putting a harley part on a esprit. that just sounds like the worst idea ever lol.
OMG surely the FAA does not recognize or certify that legal for flight. Im probably one of the biggest harley haters of them all. A buddy of mine who likes to try and hotrod his wore out the crankshaft in his last one at 50k miles. YES WORE IT OUT. I could almost see that as acceptable in a jap bike turning 20krpm but wow that is just sad. Appearantly that's not all that out of the ordinary either. It's just most people dont daily their bike so seeing 50k on the motor will almost never happen.
this is the single best thing I've read on the internet in a long time.Just slap something together with no front brake, no suspension and frame geometry that contradicts all known positive handling traits. As long as it has a huge rear tire, at least a couple of skulls and plenty of sharp things to impale yourself on in the inevitable event of an accident it must be cool.
2 years late, but hey, *cough* my friend just bought a new Gates blue belt from JAE and I found my 40K service blue belt and measured it - 23.8mm or 0.94 inches. Not even 1" wide, let alone 26.4mm Lotus OEM width.The original Lotus OEM belt is 26.4mm wide, while the similar industry standard belt width is 25.4mm... that's a nice, round 1.0 inch wide, and 1mm narrower than the Lotus belt.
Also, I'm not certain the Gates Blue belt's width has been published. It's not a "Lotus" belt, and it may have been made to Gate's standard width. Just a thought. Anyone care to measure theirs? Regardless, it's still the strongest belt available.
