You would prefer a chain drive over the stock belt. Conversion is easy and you can keep the same rear ratio while converting to a traditional and timeless 530 rear drive chain setup on all Sportsters 883 and 1200 from 1991 to year 2003.
These sprockets work perfectly with your stock rear wheel. Kyle at Lowbrow tested this belt-to-chain conversion on his 2003 1200 Sportster this summer, riding cross-country and putting over 8,000 miles on it trouble-free. MSRP $159.95. At LowBrow Customs or call toll free 1-855-4LOWBROW
