It may well be as I'm running the alloy mount with mine.
Apart from that my set up is identical to yours.
No worries about helping.
That;s what we're all here for. (y)
Forgot to mention I also have the alloy centre diff mounts.

Hey realtee30 I am also working on some different setups with some different pulleys just need to wait for then to be delivered. I am trying to find a setup where I can use the stock equipment that is used with the gear set.

What do you want to use with it?
The gears fit on he standard gears shafts but need shimming so they line up.

I want to try and use the stock shafts that are used with the gear set with the drive belt setup.

The pulleys will fit if you're using the square drive gears.
If you're using the pin drive gears you will need a new backing plate and shafts.

Dbonamy have you ran that setup yet? If so, does the belt stay on the pulleys? Looking at your pic, looks like the bottom or second pulley past the bearings doesn't have a flanges on it to keep the belt in line. Just asking....

Hey realtee30

I had to remove the flanges from the lower pulley so I can get a belt cover to fit. However, I did get a few runs in before my battery got low, and my kill switch keep on shutting down the spark. And yes, the belt stayed on the pulleys. I still need to do some more testing, but the weather has been raining on my days off.

This is the Stern system on mine.
The pulleys sit closer to the plate and there is no room for the square gear drives that you are running.

Hey realtee30

Not sure what version of the Rampage MT I have the V3 Rampage MT. The clutch bell and the break shaft where the other pulley is don’t line up the spot on the gear plate. Where the clutch bell sits out further then the break shaft for the other pulley. So, I had to extend the shaft for the second pully by modifying an 8mm bolt so the pulleys will line up. And I needed to use the square drive parts as spacers and to keep the bearing on the break shaft from moving. And I can’t cut the gear plate where the clutch bell is because of the second bearing, and I don’t have access to a lave to cut out the aluminum to make space for the bearing. Also did the idler pulley for the belt come with that setup?
