    Chain conversion

    Do you need any kind of drive cushion when you do a belt to chain conversion? I'm thinking about getting a Blast for a custom build with a chain drive and wonder if I can go without any cushion in the rear hub that you normally see with a chain drive bike?

    not required with an XB conversion but not sure on the little Blast. reach out for board member Jetlee via PM on here. he's the go-to Blast guy and very knowledgeable and pleasant to converse with. always willing to help new Blast owners.

    Stock Blast clutch does not have a sprung hub. However the little thumper doesn't make enough power to cause any issues as most of the jolts will be absorbed by the heavy chain.

    Just avoid wheel hop and all is well. We never had cush drive back in the old days running thumpers.
