    I'm thinking about removing those ugly (edit) belt guards. Anybody ever have any problems doing that?

    All it takes is one rock between the belt and pulley and the $$$ you spend will make you think again.

    Ever replace a belt? :D

    Judging from info gathered elsewhere, it seems that the odds of damaging anything are pretty high. So:

    But I do appreciate your replies. Now about that ugly front fender???

    Thats what happened to the previous owner of my bike.

    1 rock tore a large chunk out of the belt and destroyed both pullies . If I remember correctly the bill would have come to $1000.00 just for parts.

    I now own the bike and it was converted to chain and sprocket at 1/3 the cost.

    Bad things happen with bad ideas IMO...seen a friend of mine after his belt went with no guard, tore him up pretty good. But this is one of those "personal preference" issues.

    I was talking about the front fender not the belt guard, leave that alone.
