Just wondering if I am day dreaming or is it possible to replace the chain and sprockets with pulleys and a belt. That sure would be clean, smooth and quiet. Ideas any one??? Any reasons why it would not work???

I guess it is possible but depending on how much machine work you're willing to put in it. A couple major issues I see right off are

1. The belt being an endless loop so you would have to figure out a way to mount it around the swing arm.
2. The belt is also wider than the chain so clearance might be an issue around the swing arm.


IMO it's really not worth the work you'd have to put in to convert.

Sometimes the journey is more important than arriving at the destination.
