Re: Interesting Belt Website
- My belt broke in a Harley dealers parking lot so I checked on the
repair kit then. The teeth on the Harley belt are much larger and the
belt is thicker. I'm not sure if any other bike uses the belt that
the Sparrow uses. I think if the belt we use was thicker it would
probably last longer.
