So,
Bottom line at the bottom of the thread....
Get the Turbo Tec 28 Tooth Pulley here.

And there is really no need for a new shorter belt or axle extenders.

Right?!

Mike

Not quite right Mike.
Steve doesn't carry Sam's Pulley any longer. Why it's still on his site, I don't know. I have a hunch if you ordered it from him, you would get the V-Mod pulley. Order the Turbo Tec pulley here! . And you probably won't need a shorter belt. You can always just use the axle extenders if you have to.

Mike the turbo tec is the 10 to 1 favorite, I purchased the HD kit when I purchased the bike, just another item on a long list of extras, not because I thought it was a better product. The group seems to agree that the pulley is the only thing you would need. The only other issue to consider is that the Turbo Tec is aluminum and the HD is cast iron so wear issues may come into play but I bet those are many miles down the road.

Has anyone gotten the V-Mod pulley? Is there a great deal of difference? I know the original idea belongs to Sam at TurboTec, but for the same price PLUS axle extenders from MSM... Chopper Steve might get my business?!??!

Called cycle dynamics and talked directly to Sam. What a great guy! They are currently in the process of machineing more of their "world famous" 28 tooth pulleys, so If you are in the market, call now!! I got my name on the first one available! I asked for my SuperKaz discount, and he told me that the price just doubbled? WTF is up with that?!?!?

Mike

P.S. This thread ought to be a sticky!

Order is at the machinist right now, but he didn't want to be nailed down to a date. He asked when I needed it by (probably thought I was headed for Daytona!) but I told him ASAP. He sounded a bit relieved! I feel very good about this purchase!

Scout

So I guess I need to look into the speedo re-calibrator? Or will the PCIIIr work? Somehow I don't think the PCIIIr matter too much in this application?!?!

The PCIIIr will NOT adjust the speedo. You need one of three options: Race Tuner (B version), HD flash (33241-04 or 33243-04) or one of the two re-calibrators.

As per Mike's (Scout) suggestion I copied the first post into a closed, sticky thread for reference and edited the name of this thread to refer to the discussion.

I agree that the information is valuable and shouldn't get lost as this section fills up but I hate to "sticky" long, active threads so I created a clone

The easy switch thing is one reason why I went to the aftermarket. While I do have the needed tools to perform the switch, I thought it was possible I'd switch back & forth and thought it was easier.

Another big reason is performance. The aftermarket ones are aluminum, while it may not last as long as the HD steel ones will it's a lot lighter, a whole lot lighter. This is reduced rotational inertia, which translates into increased accelleration. How much? I don't know. FYI: the HD 30T is 3.26lbs and the V-Mod 29T is 1.26lbs. That's big.

I did find that I'm all the way out on the adjusters and I swear I can feel the difference in handling, bike feels longer. I've got an '04 belt on order.

FYI: the TT 28T was a lot more expensive to me, I could have had the HD kit for ~$160, TT's was $220 + a belt. Not only would I prefer to support the guy who did the initial R&D, but I think it's a better solution.

Huhh?

Find it, as I recall I said something to the effect of "you'll call me crazy, but I swear I can feel the difference pushing the rear wheel all the way out made"

or something along those lines.
