Who's running an open belt drive on their bagger? I ran a BDL on my West Coast Chopper and liked it. I was thinking about putting one on the sg. Just curious how others liked theirs.

Yes, you are right that being the main reason. I mean they have to be quieter than a traditional belt drive since there is less belt surface area. Can't be as loud as a 4".
Alot of the noise actually comes from the dry clutch rattling. The belt whine, I can deal with. My Big Bear Chopper had one on it, had a few pairs of jeans with black spots on the back.

It's not the belt per se that makes it noisy. It's the dry clutch. The plates rattle around and with no oil to dampen the noise, that's what you hear. I personally do mind the sound and have thought about doing it, but my clutch is set-up perfect for my current motor, so I really don't want to mess with it.

oops, didn't see QuickHD already posted the same thing.
