It is common for electric scooter belts to break and fall off and get lost down the road. If your belt is missing there are several ways to determine which belt size you need.
To Select The Right Size Drive Belt:
1 - Check The Outside Of The Old Belt for Numbers And Letters
These numbers and letters may be placed together (5355M15), or they may have dashes and or forward slashes between them (535-5M/15), or they may have the first 5 digits only (535-5M or 5M535). Other variations are also possible depending upon the belt manufacturer.

The length between the pen marks indicates the approximate belt length that is required. The sprocket's peak to peak teeth distance and the sprocket's teeth width measurements will also need to be taken.
