Moped Driver Belt Snapped

Hi there,


I was just wondering, my moped belt has snapped 4 times in the passed 5 months,

I don't know what this is down to but, I thought instead of taking it down to the garage to get it repaired, I'd buy a belt myself and try and do it, this proved to be to diffecult for me as you need an Air Impact Wrench to remove one of the bolts.


So my 3 questions are :


1. How much would it cost to get it fitted if I supplied the belt ? (One garage said 40£ + VAT :o)

2. What could be causing it to snap like this ?

3. If I was to replace it, as I cannot get the belt over, What is best to remove ? the clutch at the back? or the cog thing at the front?


Thanks guys.

Sorry mate....I'm on the work laptop and it don't like the chat function...... :roll:


Basically you need to remove the front pulley.......use a socket if you have one on the nut holding it on and stuff a load of rags between the pulley teeth and the engine casing...this will stop it from turning while you undo the bolt but won't do any damage to the pulley teeth or engine casings...... 8-)

Oh....and while you've got it apart check both the pulley and clutch for any rough edges that could be wearing the belt and also check that the pulley and clutch are in line....the belt is straight..... 8-)

Ah, never thought of trying that (the rag)!


Thanks for that mate, I'll give it ago and try and get back to you whenever I see you online.


Cheers.
