  • Looking for 6th gear

    Hello all! Can someone let me know if we can do the rear Harley pulley swap like the raiders/liners? I’m looking to switch to a 65 tooth rear to lower my hwy rpms. If anyone has done it, can you tell me what year Harley pulley it is?

    2006 r* 1700

          I remember coming across this thread on the old site, but it’s not coming up under searches. I tried....

          ”giving the road star legs”
          ”giving legs”

          .... but no threads?

          please help

            Go to the Facebook RSC and type in the search bar, the basics is 33 tooth front pulley, 65 tooth back pulley drilled out ever so slightly and shorter belt.

            ^^^ SHORTER belt if you're using a 65 tooth pulley.

              If the info is lost you can't access it from anywhere. The article I linked to is just a conversation with the writer of that article talking about the basic method.

            No offense, Spyder, but pretty much all you need to know was already mentioned right here! The only fact still necessary... is how many teeth to drop from the original length belt. An R* belt is 130 teeth. When I go to a 31 tooth front sprocket, I put a 128 tooth belt on... even though the 130 will work. How many teeth will he need to drop, going to a 33 front/65 rear???

              126 or 127 and don't forget to ream the mounting holes in the HD 65 tooth pulley.

              The 128 tooth belt will work, It just puts the belt adjustment on the axle more to the rear of the swing arm.
