  • Howdy from Australia

    Finally got around to signing up here.
    Been following some inspiring Facebook posts, and decided the forums are the place I need to be.

    I purchased my 1600 a little over a year ago. With the original intent being to bob it out. After a clocking up a few K's, miles, I couldn't dare destroy such a gorgeous bike.
    My "To do" modification list now consists of:
    Roadwing shock, if I can get my grubby hands on 1.
    Rear drive pulley. I have a 66t ready to go. I know 65t is suggested, but I gotta work with what's available here in Aus for the $s. Hoping to find a size required for drilling out the bolt holes on here.

    Back in January I had a set of 16" bars mounted. For me, being able to stretch out as much as possible makes for comfort. Also have highway pegs mounted to the crash bars.

    Looking forward to learning and seeing what owners have done. Don't see many modifications done to the R* over here, so this forum will serve as a Bible of knowledge to me lol.

      I've been saying howdy for years now, as means to make a mark in people's memories of our encounter. Funny that now a lot of my social circle are doing it as well. I also say happy Monday, or what ever day it may be, this has caught on as well, lol. Words can be contagious......

            31/64ths is the bit size your looking for.

          I'm sure you will like the longer legs with that rear pulley. Roadiemort is correct drilling the holes to 31/64". You might want to consider a 128 tooth belt, that is what is needed for the 65 tooth pulley.
