OK, I know it sounds nutty but I was just musing about it b/c my parents' Harleys have belt drive and it's pretty nice - no maintenence, completely silent, etc. On a scale of 1-100, how impossible do you think it would be to get a practical belt-setup on a 500R? My first thought is that it's gonna be wider, where there's really no room to put anything wider without modifying the whole rear frame - if it's wider it sticks out more (just how much more?), if the clearance problem were solved would you run into alignment issues? Could you fit a tensioning wheel like on an XB12R? Just an intellectual exercise more than anything - anybody got any ideas? If it is by some miracle doable, it would be a highly desirable mod for tourers - lubing your chain every day or two days is a pain in the rear!
