I’m pretty new to this forum and I started to browse here because my skateboard has been having crazy belt skips. I’ve had this generic Chinese board(single belt motor 225-3M-13mm) for a little bit more than a year and it was all good. However, I started experiencing belt skip issue around a month ago.
I tried switching the belts but even brand new belts would have belt skip when hard brake/steep hill. My motor mount doesn’t allow any adjustment/idler. My pulleys seem to be fine, and they’re pretty aligned(I messed up the outer rim of the wheel pulley myself so that isn’t why I’m having belt skip) Pictures below:
Any idea? It’s weird that my board only started having this issue after having it for so long… and the pulleys seem pretty fine to me. Any suggestion would be extremely appreciated. It’s my main commute to school and having belt skip while going downhill is not assuring at all.
