26 tooth pulley finally showed

As the season winds down, of course. My 26 tooth pulley from Fitzgerald Motorsports finally showed. Looks like I have a winter project for the vrod after all. I thought I was just gonna be working on my chopper.

Nope, just the pulley, and MAYBE a little trick if the adjuster won't tighten the pulley enough.

Makes the gear ratios a bit taller, so actually revs will be a bit higher at a given speed. However, quicker acceleration!

I don't do much highway riding, and it only took about a half hour to complete the change so if I don't like, easy reinstall.

If it weren't so damned cold here I'd be testing it out right now! So much for my winter project, ha!

Update: Good mother gods of all that is holy is that fast! I was not prepared for how much quicker that pulley would make it. The bike literally "jumps" forward with a throttle twist, and it now breaks the rear free in second gear, too. RPMs are obviously higher on the highway so I'll be eating up a lot more gas, but I doubt I'll go back to that 28.

The only number I really know is at 70mph and I flew by that so fast I didn't take note. Might be 300-400 RPM but just a guess. Only 40F outside so I'm in the hot tub.

Good to read you are enjoying it! Dropping 2 teeth is HUGE. Best bang for the buck hands down. Thanks for being patient.
