Something like this maybe innocent



No NVH bar to remove, but then no NVH.

What drive belt tension are you running? Either in degrees of "twist" or in MM of deflection?

Speak to Phil Bleazey. He can supply a kit that does away with the NVH hardware and replaces it with a couple of neat brackets that mount the BB direct to the chassis. It's the 'Stage 1' kit at this link.

It needs to be tighter than you may think - about 45 degrees twist on the lower part of the belt works for me.

Don't forget to check it clears the tyre (tire) as there's only a few mm of clearance.

I am only a few hundred miles into running with Phils stage one kit - ditched the NVH in favour of his solid Bevel Box mounts - and its working really well, no roughness or banging. Highly reccomended for the poor souls with the NVH fitted.

Kirk, I have the same problem. Did you grind the bushing down? Both sides?

Phils Bevels box mounting kit is applicable to all three wheelers that have the NVH kit fitted ( now fitted as standard by the factory since 2014 I believe ). I suggest you contact him to get confirmation :
