Quite a late reply - sorry about that.

The OEM crankshafts are actually pretty good. On my latest build on my racing Super 9 I changed the connecting rod, but that was because I wanted to fit a different cylinder, and the different connecting rod allowed me to do so.

It sounds like you have a pretty nice setup, but I haven't had good luck with the Malossi belts on KYMCO engines. They seem to do just fine on Minarelli and Piaggio 2t engines, but I've seen a lot of them fail prematurely on our Super 9's. I like the OEM belt the best really.

Please keep us posted on any progress with the bike.

Malossi Torque Driver should have the little lip machined off to work properly. I'm sure I posted a "How-To" somewhere on the forum site. If not here, then over on the Yahoo Super9 group site. Personally, I like the Malossi belts, but they have a very short lifespan and just "blow up" without warning. The OEM belt will just stretch out and you'll know it's time to change it. Agree about the OEM crank - it's pretty robust and not a concern with the other parts you are considering.
