... do you think the handle bar with the lower rod is correct ? It looks like it has been there forever only one is like that ,while both the engine mounts are the same . ...
I was going to say it didn't look factor because of the bad welding, but then I found this picture in their flyer. It isn't all that clear, but you can just see the same rod between the handles if you turn your head and squint with the eye of faith.
The belt length will depend on the pulley combination.
On sn265, there are two brackets welded to the sides of the handle bars. Do either of yours have them? Any idea what they are for?
