Default What kind of belt do I need?

Hey guys, quick question about a belt. I have this converter http://gokartsusa.com/GTC-TC2-Gokart...30-Series.aspx and it's been working great for about 2 years. Noticed the other day that it seemed to not be working as well as it used to be. Was looking it over and realized the belt was stretched out of shape. Where is the best place to buy a new belt? I've seen some on ebay but not sure how to know what's the correct size etc. Thanks for the suggestions!

Can you read any numbers on your old belt?

I don't know, I mean I'm no rocket biologist or anything, but have you maybe tried, or quite possibly considered this as a possible option?

you sure it stretched?

I mean worn out, yes... stretched? never heard that happening.

Anyways.. the Belt GTC provides with the TC2 is (as per their documentation) a direct replacement of a Comet 203589A
that partnumber is fixed to a specific size. (namely an outer circumference of 27")

Now just find that belt elsewhere (google )

I will look at it again in better lighting and see what I can tell.

LOL well I meant to say what to get other than there, because they seem expensive. But I can always fall back on those if I have to.

Perhaps stretched isn't the right word. It is worn out

I will keep looking on ebay for one. Thanks guys. Also will look at the one now and try to find a number.

The picture shows 2 belts. If indeed that's the case, I don't think 15 beans is that bad for a belt.

True, but shipping can be expensive..

However, I think this is what I need. Just searched the number that 'Sid put earlier. http://www.ebay.com/itm/222195637872...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Will order one and if it works will order several more

I don't know if I'd trust anything from Humble TX.
I once had to make a delivery there in a big rig. I think I missed my turn, but I knew I was really close, if not right on top of it.
I found a place to park, and found an older gentleman who looked like he had been there all his life.
I asked him if he could please tell me where Humble was?
He looked at me as if I had just asked him directions to Zimbabwe, and replied, I don't know what you're talking about.

I repeated myself explaining that I knew Humble was right around here somewhere. He said he had no idea where Humble was.

I showed him my bill of lading, He goes, OH, Umble! (silent "H")
You should have said that in the first place!!!

Maybe I can Help, I am Fluent in BBQJoe.

The ebay belt you listed Ships from "Humble" Tx...
Joe was there once and them folks weren't to bright!

I also was there once, I asked an old lady outside a Corner store...
"Does this road got to Humble" She never looked up or made any expression. She just said "Nope it stays right there all day"

I decided to try purchasing from your link, as I could probably use a few in my spare parts dept.
Here's another belt for you. It used to be one of my favs in a different life.

Oh now I got it. I saw where it was being shipped from, but I read too much into the story he told. I thought it was a joke
