New Belt Drive For Harley-Davidson Touring Motorcycles

Open belt drives look very cool on a bagger. But installation of some belt drive units will create a problem of interference with the floorboards. During the V-Twin Expo, Bandit Machine Works just released a new belt drive specifically conceived to fit HD touring models. The Bandit Bagger Drive bolts on to 1990 – 2006 FLs with no changes to the stock footboards, and uses all of the stock shifter linkage including the heel and toe shifter pedal. The 2.5" belt and the race bred Bandit Superclutch II will handle all the power you can put in a fast bagger. The Bagger Drive is also available without the shifter mount for bikes converted to forward controls.

    Open belt drives may look cool but in reality they are very dangerous and unsafe…Ever ride a bicycle without a chain guard?

    You are a wimp Rodent. Have had multiple open drives, and never had a problem. Open belts are the shitz.

    Belt drives are dangerous… wow! Man toughen up cupcake!

    Walking across the street is dangerous too, we should all have bubbles.

    You trailer your bike huh Rodent.

    Belt drives are great for getting the power to the rear wheel and you really can feel the increase of power compared to a chain sloshing around in oil….But you feel and hear everything else the vibration from not having the compensator, you get to feel every power pulse and the dry clutch makes so much noise you would think parts are flying off. It’s fine for my chopper but my Turbo charged Roadking forget it. It’s on Ebay as I write this.
