My EVO RK just LOST 22 lbs !

This is fantastic!
In my archaic quest for more...I went with less.
In weighing all the parts for a BDL belt drive installation, I have discovered the stock chain drive and all components weigh in at 44.10 lbs.
That's a pretty good chunk of iron.
Then I weighed all the belt drive stuff, - it came to 22 LBS!
So to the point, I cut the rotating mass in half!
This EVO keeps evolving.

That should be noticeable! Especially since it’s rotating mass. Let us know how it feels.

It will be a hard line to actually judge as I am doing about 12 big projects all at once to it.
It should make it a bit more snappy!
Perhaps one more HP per second?

I knew some guys into the AWD Eagle Talon/Plymouth Laser/Mitsubishi Eclipse scene and those were some pretty quick cars.
Would hazard a guess that the Lancer is even more badash considering Cars¬*¬*>¬*¬*Mitsubishi Evo 8 Supercar :: RK Racing development.
Not a well known brand this side of the pond but should be.

My bad. The name did not pop up with a bing search. Kept getting AK variants which don;t use belts.

22lbs off the moving engine sound like a significant upgrade!

The BIG reason I went to a belt is the compensators.
I cant keep one alive. The last two did not go 6K each!
Next, I always though belts in the primary was a short-lived thing, but I met some people with over 20K on them.
Now it has become a no-brainer.
$300 dollar compensators, oil, gaskets, and PIA
Or a 150.00 dollar belt.
The weight reduction is a nice plus.

BDL makes many systems , closed / open
What i really like about this is their lockup clutch.

I dont know what kind of bike you have, but if it is sort of a Harley, they have a Belt system for it
