The belt was a gates 1512-8MGT3-30
The pulley on the motor was 22 tooth
10B is the industrial chain / sprocket code. I don't have the bike chain code, but that will be easy to find online. Using chain I could get a 12tooth sprocket on the motor.
G'day Wayne, Stuart here, in Thailand.
Just wondering did you find what the problem was with your Gates GT3 belts on your EV platform - was the motor torque just too high? What pitch and width were you using?
We are designing one now - I would like to use a toothed rubber belt, but a bit wary.
How is your experience with the chain drive? What size did you use?
Will show you my design when it's ready.
Thanks and best regards,
