How do you remove the drive belt?!??

Postby Batavus1977 » Tue Oct 06, 2015 3:55 am

Hi everyone!

I am new to these forums, decided to join after reading some posts from some time ago and also my love for moped and motorcycles. I recently bought myself a 1977 batavus VA moped and I was wondering how do you take off the drive belt? I already have the online manual but the pages where it talks about the drive belt are missing, page 26 to be exact. Can someone please explain to me on how I can remove the drive belt? Thank you!

Best I can think of is remove the clutch then slide back on with belt. It probably could also forced over the pulleys one at a time but may damage the belt.

Hmm, ok. I saw how beat up the old one was and ended up just cutting it and will bring it to my shop so they can find the same belt. My problem will be putting the new one on but I'll do what you said.
