You may want to convert your bike, stock or custom, from a belt drive to a chain drive for many good reasons. Without any order, because you want added driveline strength, because you made your engine “bigger” or installed a new one, because you are looking for a different final drive ratio, because you need to gain clearance for wider rear tire, because you need to clear a passenger peg, for looks, etc and all the above!
How to get started? First by identifying your motorcycle type and year group if a stock bike, what style of chain you wish to run, and what sprockets you are thinking of, and the experts at Zippers Performance will give you the best optimized solution of sprocket, chain and necessary hardware to make your conversion right the 1st time. Need help understand gear ratios and offset calculations? No problem, they will explain and I promise that you will understand. Big Twins 5 & 6-speed, sportsters, custom bikes, every bike has one or more belt-to-chain conversion kits. Call Zippers Performance on my behalf at 410-579-2828.
