    How hard would it be to convert a left side drive EG, to a Right side drive? Is it even possible or has it ever been done?

    Just out of curiosity; why would you want to do that?

    Would it not be simpler to change the drive belt, or replace the belt if it broke?

    How often do you go through belts to warrant the cost to change to a right side drive? I dunno, I can understand it for a larger tire, but to each their own.

    The basic concept for the right hand drive is to balance the bike better. If you think of it, the primary,clutch , alternator and a few other things are on the left side. The trans is also off center to the left to accommodate lining things up in the drive system, so right hand drive balances it off.
