Has anyone tried to update the chain drive to a belt drive? Is this even a good change? I see most of the chopper bikes being built with the belts and they look like they are easier to take care of. Just a question to ponder

It's been discussed.

Check out the search function.

I believe it was decided that there wasn't enough clearance to do it.

Not changing to belt drive from chain

Plus they are more expensive, heavier, and you have less choices of components. The Buell racer guys all switch to chains. Only advantages of the belt are no lubrication or adjustment.
