    Tuber is Tube-Frame Buells, the generation before XB's and Blasts.

    Double belts is a no. Just don't even entertain the idea.

    Fatest tire on a stock Blast wheel without modifying the swingarm is a Pirelli Diablo 140/70-16. It's also the stickiest tire available.

    Oh ok ,and if I may ask why no on the belt if I'm plan to stretch it out ? And I may just go with that tire

    I'm not talking about one om on the front wheel to but instead of one huge chain going to the back make a dual belt system to the rear .

    Belts can't be shortened or lengthened, like taking links out of a chain. So using 2 belts for the rear would make you a loooooooooooooong bike.

    OK thank Cooter I was thinking they make shorter belts ,guess I'll just go with a chain conversion

    You're stretching a Blast?

    Sorry, I gotta throw in the towel here. It's not a gixxer or a drag bike.
