Another 100 rpm, faster again.
    I'm trying to understand more about the belt problems at higher rpm. I read similar comments in other threads.
    Perhaps others can learn also. Please explain in some detail.
    Thank you.

    Our understanding is the same about the eventual direct drive. After making 6-8 pulls on a hot day up to
    55-5600, the comet belt will flip backward in the sheaves~ 5500. I honestly don't know why. More
    problematic is the comet belt slipping under WOT and glazing the tapered side to a shiny smooth black. End of belt.
    The bando belt will not slip which makes for phenomenal acceleration; I don't push it though theoretically with
    enough open road and enough motor the speed is unlimited. The bando belt eventually wears down but can be
    used til it pops. Careful here, one popped on me and got hung in the driven enough to lock the back wheel up. Also, we both know that , more specifically, the "direct- drive" is actually direct-over-drive.
