       THE ULTIMATE IN  DRIVE BELT VIBRATION CONTROL

                       STOP SUFFERING FROM  BELT  VIBRATION!

 

The Smoothspyder  Tensioner will effectively stop or substancially reduce the belt vibration by applying dynamic spring loaded tension to the top or bottom side of the belt depending on the model and belt length.

 

The Can Am Spyder uses an exceptionally long drive belt, 40" between the front drive sprocket and rear sprocket. This extreme length may cause the belt to create harmonic resonance and belt vibration.

This vibration is most noticeable when under a load, such as riding double, going up hills, pushing into a strong headwind or towing a trailer.

 

Eliminating or reducing the vibration may substancially increase the reliability and useful lifespan of the entire driveline, including the front output shaft bearings and drive pulley, belt, rear sprocket and bearings and any other parts that may crack or loosen, such as fuses, light bulb filaments, fender brackets, etc.   

 

Vibration is not only detrimental to the Spyder, but  fatiguing and annoying to the riders also, rear view mirrors become useful again!

 

Smoothspyder Tensioner brackets are constructed of stainless steel or plate steel / powder coating for durability.
