The GV650 comes from the factory with Belt Drive but some have asked me about converting to chain, also some GT650 owners have asked about converting to belt drove, also we have the question about putting the GV650 awing arm and or the rim on a GT650.

My 2005 GV650 is on its third pair of tires and still on the factory original belt, I have replaced the tires on several other GV650 and "adjusted the belt" on over 6 bikes, none of the belts have broken. Many have come in with the belt out of alignment and the Nut loos,that had been "adjusted" by some local shop.
Un like some HD, the Hyo does not use a tentioner on the drive built but a single sided cog that must be aligned correctly to work.
See for the belt drive conversion of the Gt650.
