The term "Belt" as it applies to mopeds refers to a flexible loop of material, usually nylon or rubber, that is stretched around two or more rotating pulleys in order to transfer motion from one to the next. Belt can also refer to the laminations and reinforcements found in tires. Belts are used most often in mopeds that use variators though some non-variated engines also use them.
