ive had a thought of replacing the gears with toothed pulleys, there are alot of different sizes avalable but im starting off with 2mm pitch 6mm wide

i have seen those before and im sure they work great but i wasnt so keen on spending $130, if these cheaper ones decide not to work for any reason i would be considering in one of those but i wasnt too keen on the 1:1 i would have liked to chop n change when i want if i had the opportunity.

im getting something like this it uses a 6mm wide belt which might to too thin but it fits with the stock cover on... if the belt decides to break i would go for the 16mm wide instead
