Has anyone installed a Hogpro 240 kit with PM Wheels and Pulley? I have been having problems since March and just wondering if anyone else had problems with the PM stuff (specifically the pully) matching MOCO specs..

I have got a Hogpro 240 kit on order with Renegade Wheels, Renegade Rotors, Pulley, and PM Callipers.

What is wrong with the pully?

I have one for the Monaco wheels and its pretty much crap. I won't use it even after having it machined for the Harley bearing. If I can install the actual toothed cog from the Harley pulley I might give it another try. If not it will become a garage clock. I think it it just made to ride up to the corner bar and back.

There is a bearing in the pulley that is smaller than the stock HD bearing. The problem is that in order to get the HD size bearing in the PM pulley you would need to machine the pulley hole wall recess by almost 1/4 inch. PM tells you to just use a spacer, but every spacer we have tried doesnt allow for the "teeth", if you will, of the backside of the pully to set nicely in the rubber compensator bowl gasket. The pulley has left/right wobble.

Now PM is sending yet another spacer to me. :soapbox:

I have been working with Hogpro and PM since April on this project and it is not a bolt on soloution (at least the PM part). My bike has been down on and off for 5 weeks over this stupid idea I had to install a 240 and PM wheels on my bike.

That's the same problem I ran into. I even had some custom spacers made, but if you move the pulley into the wheel you mess up the belt alignment. The teeth that engage the cush drive are not as wide as the stock pulley adding to the sloppy engagement. Its just poorly designed.
The wheel bearings are not the same as the H.D. bearings either. They only use one seal and they aren't as wide.

Dale,
Did you get your set from Hogpro? Trying to help Phil make a case if in fact mine will not engage with their new spacer set. I want to return all of this PM crap if this doesnt work

I like the wheels and will keep an eye on the bearings but I can't understand how they can sell these pulley's. Wierd thing is I sent a p.m. to Frank (Bad VR) because he has these wheels on his D and he didn't have a problem with his wheel to pulley fit. Even after you solve the problem of making it fit right and run true the pulley teeth are not cut the same as the stock pulley and I think it will cause a lot of belt dust and wear the belt out quicker.
You can always keep the wheels if you like them and find another pulley that will work. It won't look as good as the matching pulley but it won't leave you on the side of the road either.
