    Rear Drive Pulleys

    Hi all Im new to this site so please bear with me

    I was reading SORRY i Have a 2008 softail heritage FLSTC and i read that if you change the front and rear pulleys you would receive around 13% more power, they say it has more torque through the gears

    I'm sure my bike has standed pulleys and belt TRANS 32 Teeth Rear pulley 66 Teeth and a 133 tooth belt, can anyone confirm this and were do i get a 70 tooth pulley for the rear

    Cheers Fellas

    Re: Rear Drive Pulleys

    Nice to have ya here loz. It's true that you can effect the performance with different size pulleys. A 70 tooth on the rear would give you a lower ratio. faster off the line/more power but higher rpm at high speed cruise, and decreased mpg...You may also have to put a longer belt on it, if you can't slide the wheel forward enough. Why would you want to do this. You still ain't gonna beat that kid next door on his crotch rocket...Changing the front pulley and or belt is a real big job.

    Call tech here, if they don't have the pully they may be able to order one in for you...


    Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.
