Even if you could find one (or have it made) you'd have trouble getting a belt to fit, and a custom belt would be very pricey (usually requires large minimum order quantity). If you want to mess with custom drive ratios other than 26/72, 28/72, and 30/72 you should switch to a chain.Bruce Helland said:Does any one make a front pulley with more cogs than the stock 30 tooth? Thinking about sone changes over the winter and this would fit in well. (Guess I got excited when Jan-Dirk accidently posted he had a 32 tooth pulley.) ...
Max,Max said:Steve if he converted to the narrow belt he could use the 07-08 belt which is 151 tooth. Jan's bike is an 03 I think so if you could find who made his pulley it should work on any 02-03 hubbed bike.
That's interesting. I never thought about moving UP to a larger front pulley. I don't think I would like it on the 1130 bikes but maybe on a 1250????? In non turbo form I like running the 28 tooth. There just didn't seem to be enough torque to suit my tastes in stock trim.rodman said:
Interesting that Speed-point sells those; however, there's a couple of problems that I have with these items:rodman said:Well the 32 tooth might be the thing. I suggest you simply email speed-point. They reply is broken but OK English and I've spoken to them on the phone as well.
Very High Quality products, - I have their fairing and handlebars.
Note that the Front pulley has an offset from stock. ...
Hey I'm not affiliated with speed point, I'm not even German!stever975 said:Interesting that Speed-point sells those; however, there's a couple of problems that I have with these items:
1) Since 199 € is about $290, that's more than $200 higher than a MOCO pulley. I sure hope the quality is "Very High".
2) 7075 Aluminum, although one of the harder grades, is not likely to hold up as well as the MOCO steel versions, even with the applied hard coating.

Nothing wrong with being affiliated with Speed-point or even with being German for that matter, and I agree that these might be the only bigger front pulleys available and so it's interesting to see that Speed-point provides these as an option.rodman said:Hey I'm not affiliated with speed point, I'm not even German!
But... It is practically impossible for a German company to make a obviously unsafe product. I bet Speed-points needed TUV certification to sell it, TUV certification requires safety testing.
In Germany you can't license a bike with any modifcations unless the mods have a TUV certificate. I'm not a metallurgist, but Speed-Point have been around a while and their wheels and pulleys are very widely used, so I would be inclined to trust them.
You've got a point on the price though.. American greenbacks need to stop sliding backwards man, the currecy devaluation isn't good for anybody. My company sells products priced in freakin' USD, I've might have to move to Euro pricing to keep from giving product away for free...
The real question is: are there any other alternatives if you want 32 teeth? If not then this might be expensive, but at least it's from a reputable, innovative supplier.
OK I see where your coming from - that's a good point, and I've heard of early 28 tooth pulleys causing that same problem. I'd definitly suggest speaking to S-P to see what they have to say on the matter.stever975 said:Nothing wrong with being affiliated with Speed-point or even with being German for that matter, and I agree that these might be the only bigger front pulleys available and so it's interesting to see that Speed-point provides these as an option.
Concerning safety and TUV approval: I wasn't saying these aren't safe and they may hold up long enough not to trigger a problem with TUV approval, but other aftermarket Al alloy front pulleys didn't hold up and caused problems with drive belts rubbing the fuel tank so I wouldn't recommend using these until I heard some feedback from someone else that's used them or until I heard of the expected lifetime from Speed-point.
Something MAY be in the works for that, but I can't comment on that at this time.rodman said:OK I see where your coming from - that's a good point, and I've heard of early 28 tooth pulleys causing that same problem. I'd definitly suggest speaking to S-P to see what they have to say on the matter.
I wonder also if Pondo could machine up a 32 tooth... he seems pretty handy with the whole CAD/CAM thing and he did a stainless comp bowl for me.

I don't think the 32 would work proper w a 55mm sidewall tire.You'd be like Fred Flintstone taking off and at highway speed,60 to 65 mph,you'd probably be hunting between 4th and 5th.
It might work ok w a 240 tire because the side wall is 40mm.On my 03 w the 30th and a 240 tire take off is more comfortable compared to the 180-55 tire.
