It is my understanding that the belt drive torque converters are at best 80% efficient... think what that KLR could do with a proper transmission.

Belt or chain should be good. Don't see why a double roller though- just use standard motorcycle sizes.

I've been wondering lately how much power can be put through those skinny serpentine belts, but haven't looked into that yet...
