How I reduced tire wear on my friction drive.

    I installed a 31 cc Honda 4 stroke with the Staton mount and tire wear was excessive.

    The roller was knurled and it cut into the rubber like a file.

    Using an angle grinder, I cut about 6 grooves lengthwise into the roller.

    (It looks like a shallow groove spline shaft.)

    Tire wear went down to an acceptable level.

    Cool. That's good info.
