Wow, I have been away for a while. This thread has blown up. For some reason it hasn't been notifying me of these posts.

Someone asked after oh much longer the motor haft would need to be to allow the pulley to be fully on the shaft when upgrading — need to be 5mm longer on a the initial batch of motors.

This is where I get most of my pulleys and belts. I find it to be cheaper for most items than sdpi. Shipping too. However the website can be hard to find stuff and not as much info so you need to know exactly what you want.

Last time I checked, they didn't have any GT2 open ended belts in stock. I ended up buying the largest/longest closed loop belt and just cutting it to size.
