Easy Conversion Kits From Belt To Chain

zipperschain1cyrilhuzemotorcycle1You 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. During Daytona Biketoberfest you can also talk to Dan & JK at the ThunderMax display at Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona (picture Cyril Huze bike “Kiss My Wheels”)

    The picture of the system installed on the bike is a “Sproter” style system which is not what is being offered in the “Belt To Chain” switch over.

    Belts ? Belts are for sissy’s!

    Jeff Nicklus –

    Zipper’s has kits for Sportsters, too… I was looking into it for my XL. Just have to give them a call. I think this update was just Big Twin models. My .02.

    Rosie,

    I didn’t say “Sportsters” I said “Sproter” …. the brake and the rear sprockets are one in the same.

    I stand corrected! That’s what I get for typing at work! Trying to read, type and close the window before the boss comes in the office… :-)

    Rosie,

    You go ahead and type your little heart out …. we won’t tell the boss ………..

    Over & Out,

    Jeff
