  • middle gears

    How tight is the chain supposed to be on the middle gears? My belt has been slipping no matter how it was adjusted. Thought it might be the gears but don’t see any sign of wear except the chain stretch. The front belt pulley may be worn. What do you guys think?

        It is time for a new chain, for sure.

        Was belt tension checked periodically? Is there play in the rear shaft to the belt pulley?

              The chain looks stretched but no damage to the teeth on the gears. How does the rear belt pulley sprocket look?
              The slipping is probably the clutch, a lot of us change over to the Barnett clutch spring conversion kit and get away from the diaphragm clutch spring. It get weak over time.

                If your belt is "slipping" that sounds more like a symptom of a stripped out front pulley. How the hell are you? Just got a total knee on my left side from all my badass Motocross days, just kidding surfing skateboarding volleyball Motocross it all adds up, going to bike toberfest Daytona on the trike.

                  I want to thank you for your help with respect to the trikes champion trikes. I'm going to tell you what you already know , that rear axle and drivetrain is freaking bulletproof, but it also transmits a lot more feedback back to the front drive pulley then what the bike was designed for. I know that's when I slow down and take corners the wheels will chirp and no it's not the belt it's the wheels. And the wheels will spin around the slow turn easily. And the 1600 is torkey just like the 1700. It's really easy to do donuts in the sand or when it's wet, but I'm afraid if I did it on dry pavement then I may damage something costy so I don't.

                      If the gears are showing groves, then I would change both gears along with the chain.
