I am currently thinking about alternatives for at least the high gear chain. The low gear one lasts a lot longer.
A bigger size chain as such would not do much good I think as long as the side plates are of equal thickness. It would rapidly lengthen just as much. Solution would be a chain that is not much wider but has thicker sideplates.
Have also thought about a toothed belt (too little space in the casing I guess) or a V belt (which would bring the need of relocating the magnetodrive to the other side and would probably slip a lot due to all the oil in that region). Well, thinking about it at least keeps you busy 😀

But hey, let’s stay on topic a bit… Are ther any other faults in the Scott motorcycle?
