bad to the bone
What size sprocket should I run on front and back for turbo set up and yes I will run highway and around town. Thanks in advance.
You know that the Trask hub adapter will bolt up to your 180 wheel too. It's just as wide as the comp bowl and the stock pulley. You could use a flat late model HD sprocket off the shelf (2.214" center, 5 bolt with .4375 bolt holes). You could even run a wider rear tire. You'll have room. Just check the clearance next to the tank in case it may have a budge in it. Front sprockets can be picked up from Vreelands HD. Since you'll have it all apart, I would also change the wheel bearing to ceramic bearings too. You'll notice a big difference with ceramic bearings.Yea, I'd love to ditch that 9 Lb. cush drive and 5 Lb fwd. belt pulley. Don't know the weight difference going chain but must be half that ? The cush drive is just that - it cushions the peak power inputs to the wheel and lessens peak loads on the wheel and the transmission, so for a street bike I don't think it's all bad - I would think the chain and a good cush drive may be a decent setup to save some weight, get full power without the stock belt worries ( especially the skinny 240 belts at high power levels ) and have reliability. Time for me to do some research for a cushion kit for use with a stock R wheel -
