Gates 6231mc 9.5mm x 1275mm

Packaging says 10mm but measuring it, gives 9.5mm.

If nice guys finish last, then that's alright; at least my conscience will be clear at the end.

Glad you're sorted! That's useful extra info - I've made this thread a sticky in General Technical to preserve it for posterity :D

Hi all! Just a quick update :)

For anyone who has the oval port with 3 pullies, the size of belt is 1275 by the manufacturer 'Gates'.

However, if you have a larger servo like me, the 1275 is again too long; therefore you'll need a belt measuring 1250mm length and 10mm width; Gates also sell these :)

Hope this helps someone in future :)
