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

Please see if you can infiltrate the MoCo and get them straightened out.

Yep, this has been all over the Yahoo message board! Really makes me happy I did the Turbo Tec pulley almost a year ago!

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!

This has been asked before and we have a smaller group here but ..... How many people have needed the extenders with the 28T and the stock belt?

Mark I did not need the extenders but mine was right at the end of the adjustment.

Has anyone running the 28T with the 02-03 belt had a problem with belt failure? Just curious as the 28T is actually smaller than the 5" radius that the MoCo recomends.

Belt noise seems to be the biggest complaint. But you are correct that the belt is being bent farther then it was originaly intended.

My belt made all kinds of noise in stock configuration, after going to the HD pulley kit noise has dropped to zero. Go figure, difference in belt composition mabey?

It might be, I think belt alignment makes a big difference as well and since the adjusters seem a little sloppy or less then exact it may just be that they got the rear wheel in perfect alignment.

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.

How tight was the hub on the trans shaft when you installed your pulley. Were you able to get it loose with a regular puller?

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.
