And please don't say V-MOD, been there tried to do that....Chopper Steve has had my $664. since 12-2-10. I have requested a refund, however I still need the adapter.I have a 2002 with a Hogpro widened swingarm. Thanks, Eric :D

I would need to make one to give a sound price. What I need is some measurements I need to know the space from the outside edge of the cush adapter to the out side edge of your pulley. Your outside edge of your sprockets should in theory like up to the outside edge of the pulley. I have no problem machining the lugs in and pressing a bearing into an adapter. Mine will be made to a specific bolt pattern so your rear sprocket may not match up.

1.035 is outside of Cush to outside of pulley. It wass a pita to measure and now that I have the whole thing apart, the Cush drive looks like a big turd. Is it even worth keeping? I guess I'm just worried about blowing the tranny. I beat the hell out of the bike, third tire in 2 years. Opinions?

I'm not too sure if it is work keeping. All the guys who are running the Buell wheels don't have cush drives and they don't seem to be complaining. I got right at an inch to the belt line did you subtract the .125 thickness for the outer ring on the pulley?

I'm about to draw it it and order material. Stop me now if you guys don't want these.

didnt subtract the ring thickness. im thinking less is more approach. wouldnt it be a hella easier and nicer to just have a adapter and eliminate the cush? looking for ssome direction...

yea I mean I would machine you a spacer that would replace the bowl thats attached to your hub and space it out to accept your sprocket. Be a big chuck of Aluminum

Hmm, I want to do this chain drive but seems like a whole lot a work to keep the stock rim. Make me an adapter, whatever is easier for you. Can u pm me a estimate? Thanks for your help.
