EZM never replied, I wonder if they are even still in business. After getting the info here and checking things out, I was able to get better climbing by opening up the outer pulley some. This transmission was not made to fit the engine I have, so more holes and slots needed to be drilled and filed out to slide the tranny. A bolt on the belt tensioner will also bump into the back of the engine at a certain point, so there is some fiddling around and truing things that must be done. A smaller diameter crank pulley and a shorter belt would make this climb well, just don't know if there will be enough adjustment in things to work as it now stands, and still have a good chain line.

No need to call Quenton at this point. With the information I got here, and more elsewhere, plus some measuring, marking, drilling, filing, test fitting, adjusting the pulley, more drilling and filing, and test fitting and then more of the same and a bit of sawing, it is to the point where if the bike will pull itself up my steep driveway without having to pedal. Now I need to find out what started squealing on the bike in the middle of my last test run just before dusk.
