That's different! Little diff way to shift it looks like! Bet you'll be measuring belts with ropes around pulleys on that one, not much info I"m betting.

I'm thinking loose belt, a slipping belt will get hot quick, check belt tension engaged, make sure enough pressure is being applied( a weak spring, limited movement or belt a touch long),if engaging at top of pedal belt is loose, if engaging at 3/4 pedal not enough pressure, it is normal for pulleys to heat with use but with a light load (not working hard) this should take a lot longer than 5min.s
Got it all corrected and greased . Notice drive pulleys get pretty hot after 5 mins of driving . Pulled them all apart and bearing and all is in good shape and greased wellcwhst can it be?
