    I put the SpeedoDrd on my Raider before I put the 240 on. I run one on my FZ1.

    I'm not sweating it.  My guess is it won't be quite as big a difference as a Liner rear pulley but will be more than the difference of the 210 to 240.  I think it will be noticeable.  I don't think it's gonna be too radical for the slab, either.  If Liners can do it then a geared Raider will have no problem.  I just like the idea of being able to change gears and not needing a new belt.

      It was a noticeable difference on my Stryker. Yes the speedo will be back to original error

      So let me see if I have this right.  Go down one tooth up front and you get more grunt down low.  Is that right?  And you don't have to get a new belt?  If that's the case I am in also...  ;D

      That's it Bill,  when I was racing I had  12, 13, 14 and 15 tooth front sprockets short course arena crosses I would use a 12 or 13 and could launch in 2nd gear but you do have to shift gears quicker, big outdoor tracks the 14 or 15 so you don't have to shift  as often, it will make a difference really looking for this to happen with a 30 front pulley

      So cool, I can't imagine my Raider pulling harder than it already does... I may have to invest in a seat belt...  ;D  I may have missed it but any idea how much that pulley will cost?

      How many more rpms will the motor be spinning at say cruising 70mph?

      I havnt done any math on this but I'd guess somewhere around 300-400 rpms difference

      Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..

      All of you guys here, want a 30T front pulley ?
      I would need a 32 T front one, I like less rpm at cruising speed ... nobody willing ?

      I like less rpm at cruising speed too.  But I like more acceleration even more! ;)

      Less rpm at cruising speed => the only mod that I know, is to use a 61T HD pulley and 1 1/8 belt. I had this combination, but the belt broked and I have changed back to stock system.
      But maybe the drop from stock 66T to 61T is too much. So, I would like to have a 64T rear/stock front, or a 32T front/stock rear (same ratio in both cases)...

      Does anybody has any hint ? 64T rear or 32T front ?

      If you want lower RPMs, get the rear pulley and belt from a Roadliner or Stratoliner.

      Ken the liner pulley is bigger then the raider's far as I remember ... that would increase cruising Rpms bro
