Swing arms and drive belt discussion

G'day guys
As I've previously mentioned I'm modifying my street 500 a lot.
I want to put longer swing arms on it and am just doing a bit of research on it. The most obvious issue will be the length of the drive belt.
If I use the swing arms from a vrod (example only) can I also use the drive belt from the same bike?
If there are other issues, like, location or size of the front sprocket is anyone aware of a compatible bike with longer swing arms than the street 500?

You likely will be forced to go chain drive. Finding a belt to fit your sprocket in a custom application like yours is not going to be easy.
