I would be interested in a primary belt drive for a 2014 UCE.
Any thoughts?

If your thinking of a rear belt drive I don't think there is enough room in width for one.

There is barely enough room for the #530 chain these motorcycles use.

As I recall, lytedrive was trying to sell his design for the primary drive that runs from the crankshaft to the clutch.

I don't believe you it's possible to install a primary belt drive on an UCE motor.  The primary case and engine case are all one unit, hence why it's called the UCE, and as far as I know, belt drive are not safe to be used in a wet primary.

Besides, this particular guy was trying to sell these belt drives for like $800-$900 and the only details and information he could provide was "They have 4 or 5 plates.  They are much stronger than stock."  Then when I asked him why anyone would spend almost $1000 on "new" belt drive when he couldn't even provide details as to what materials any of it was made of or anything like that, he made a smart ass remark and then just disappeared.
