Re: What is happening

I don't know about everyone else, but I've been waiting and wondering about you and your mom. The longer it got since your last post, the more I was dreading.

so much for the "Oh, everyone says those cracks in the belt are normal. Nothing to see here, move along."

Harleys use belt drive primaries like that. Might be a possibility.

Fun Fact: Over there you call it a rotor arm. Over here we just say rotor. Nickname: bug. That's it. Older mechanics will call it the bug. Every once in a while, rotor bug.
