Originally posted by djoyce I doub't they would as the flange is made to fit somewhat snug to the pulley. There was a lot of slack in the mounting holes but that would make it very easy to get off center.
Yes, I saw that. This looks like another engineering exercise gone amiss by HD. If they would have simply made the 30T wall thickness more they could have used the same flange for either pulley. How that they have 28T's in the US and 30T's in the rest of the world they have to keep an inventory of 2 different flanges as well as the extra casting (the unit looks cast, if it's forged then the price goes up even more). Doesn't sound like much to us but when you add up the cost over 10000+ bikes a year it's a significant savings.
If you can't tell I'm an engineering manager and I spend almost as much time directing my engineers to look at the whole picture as I do actually designing stuff

Once again it's that CASH THING!You must bring it to a dealer to have it installed or pay the bucks for your own special tool! MOCO is pretty smart that everything"well almost" they make after market need the dealership to install correctly!
They would be "me" Max, thanks for the compliment Seriously though, has anyone noticed the difference in the recommended belt tension between the owners manual and the service manual? Service calls for 6mm at 10lbs owners calls for 7.9 to 9.5 at 10lbs. Typos? or is belt adjustment not as critical with the Revolution motor as it was with the Evo.
The hub came right off with my $10 harmonic balancer puller. not too much effort required. The hard part was getting the flange nut off, that took a 3 foot cheater and some tool fab to keep the flange from turning.
