I wonder about where I find info on the stock drive belt for my bike. I searched and found something about 28 or 30 something something. My dealer doesn't seem to stock anything for the VRod and I if mine breaks I would be looking at about a week of waiting.

Anyone know an online source.
Anyone know the part number?!

Thanks!

It is a stock pully by my knowledge. So then a 30 tooth! (by the way, why would someone change it?)
Now maybe it will be easier to answer!!! thanks!

you can go with a 28 tooth pulley and gain some get up and go off the line but will loose some top end.

I look on ebay quite a bit and see belts (150 tooth) on there every once in awhile for pretty cheap.

I have a stock 150 tooth from my 03 A I might consider selling if you need one. It's in good shape I replaced it when I did my 240 conversion. PM me and let me know sometime, it's not going anywhere!

First you need to know which beelt you need. Do you have the 28 or 30 tooth front pulley? The bike came stock with the 30, so unless you changed it you have the 30.
Unless you bought the Bike used and the Previous owner switched to a 28T. It's best to look at the pulley before you buy a belt to make sure.
Remove the cover and look for the stamp. It will say 30T or 28T.
If you can't find the stamp, just count the teeth. :D

its the other way around. think of a ten speed wheel. when you go to a smaller gear .you go faster but not as quick

They were talking about the front pulley and yes they were correct. Gain low end, lose top end when going smaller pulley up front. But this thread is almost 14 years old. If you look on the top of the posts, you can see the date it was posted. There has been a lot of resurrected threads lately and unless it is relevant information or an ongoing thread there is no point in responding. I mean no disrespect at all, just making it aware.

when I went to Heald for Computer Science I remember them telling us how to set up a web site and there was a section on keeping conversations up to date and the web administrator had the ability to keep old news out of sight I wish they would do that here.

That would destroy the wealth of knowledge there is on this forum. The old threads need to visible so new members can read all about problems and comments from the past and learn from the experience of older members. They just need to learn just to read them and refrain from adding unnecessary comments at the end reviving the thread. If they have a question then they should start there own thread specific to their problem and not some vaguely connected comment that brings an old thread back.
