    Probably could cover it with a flat plate. Picture is a bit small to see if anything 'structural' is there but if comp is a couple of month away I would use that as a backup plan. Do you have the...

    He did in his first post, could have included a little more info (course/discipline etc) but the basics are there.

    Check the alignment (offset and twist) of the two sprockets, that could account for higher wear.
    Otherwise, some stretch is normal, have you designed an adjustment mechanism/tensioner?

    Drivers wear triple layer suits and fire retardant balaclavas, adding (and becoming reliant on) another system to put the fire out isn't warranted IMO. Marshalls have extinguishers and belt cutters,...

    I've ridden the 675 on track (I race on an R6) and the engine has immense torque and it feels very smooth, If I had my time again, I would certainly be looking at that engine a bit harder.
