Front Pulley
« on: Mar 13, 2016, 06:13:27 pm »
I found a potential company to produce a 30T front pulley but I need to send them one. The Stratoliner and Roadliner are the same. If you come across a used one somewhere, let me know.

    No idead. This company makes sprockets for Harleys (of course). The guy didn't give me any idea on cost or minimum order. I posted the same request on a Stratoliner forum so who knows, maybe someone has one. Thanks

      Liners and Raiders are the same at 31.  The difference is the rear pulley, but that means the belt needs to be changed.  He needs the spare to send so they have the dimensions for the offset, width, center hole diameter, how it's mounted, etc.  Once they have the hub dimensions they could make 30 and 32 tooth pulleys, and they could be changed without buying a belt.  Theoretically. Hopefully. 

      If I could get a 30 tooth for under $90 I wouldn't even think twice.  At $150 I'd probably still be in, but I might wait to see how other people like it.  Over $250 I'd look for a Liner pulley and belt and stick with Yamaha quality.  If I made a change at all.  Then again, if the front could be swapped without removint the rear wheel it still might be worth it.

      Yeah man I got ya ... Don't know why but I had a brain fart for a second , thought the front was the difference, but your 100% correct it the rear!

      No doubt , for $90 I would be in big time , 1 down on front would give our bike a better low end for sure ! And you could run the stock belt like you said , so that's a plus !

      Honest question.  What difference is 1 tooth going to make?  I would think it's so we can use the cheaper belt with 1 less tooth or is it for those who like to street race?

      The latter. You will keep the stock belt.

      Don't know how big a difference it will make on the raider ...

      But on a sport bike it makes a good difference in low end and acceleration !
       1 down on the front is equal to three up on the rear on a sportbike , I would imagine it would be close to same on raider
