Steve Anderson, former engineer and platform manager at Buell and EBR, Tweeted this today. Itís an improved drive belt and sprocket arrangement from Gates. The sprocket includes ďmud portsĒ which Steve says should fix a problem that occurred on Ulysses in the mud: build up of mud between the belt and sprocket causing increased belt tension, occasionally breaking belts and/or wrecking bearings.

Hmm, I wonder how hard it would be to mill mud ports in our sprockets?

Iím pretty sure this is intended for yet-to-be-released motorcycles. Perhaps it could be adapted to a Uly, or the stock Uly sprockets could be modified by adding mud ports.

I'd have a hard time with a bike named Cake. Nevermind the Kalk.
