Default Sportster Rear Belt Pulley

I need a 65 or 66 tooth rear pulley for my 2008 sportster. stock was 68.
1 inch width preferred, or 1 1/8 width. 2.200 inch pilot. Anybody got an HD part number reference for that?

I bet HD made a pulley like that some time on some bike. Problem is the HD parts guys don't have information on dimensions - just the fitment. So on custom setups, we're on our own! I'd prefer to use HD pulleys.

Not interested in aftermarket pulleys any more. I'd appreciate any information someone could share.

ok I have to ask. Why a smaller pulley? need more low end torque? Am I missing something? Sorry I can not help with the original question.

I ride on the interstate a lot. At 75 MPH plus, a 30/66 ratio is better than the stock 28/68 ratio. That helps keep engine speed, and vibration more reasonable. I ride my bike to work every day, 62miles roundtrip. On my ride to work, I am only in first gear twice. It's 5th gear I am interested in. Some day I'll get a Dyna, but cant afford it now. I like the sporty anyways. I tried a aftermarket pulley and wore it out in 4 months. I need that Harley 5 year tooth wear warranty the way I ride.

1 or 2 tooth bigger front pulley will lower the motor 300 or 600 rpms respectively. No one messes with the rears to much. And front sprockets are plentiful and can be had in high strength aluminum that weigh almost 4lbs less than stock.

Harley has never made many options for pulleys, front or rear. They are mostly driven by market considerations, for example International models often have higher gearing, which is what you are after, as also do Japanese (I know that is International, but they seem to have their own peculiar requirements). Take a look at the parts lists on Ronnies H-D microfiche, which should show parts for other markets.

We also have a 32 tooth front pulley available, Google Search.

Sportsters starting in 2004, have the following: 68 tooth rear, 883 & 1200; 28 tooth front, 883's; 29 tooth front, 1200's. From 1991-2003, 883 & 1200 had the same primary ratio (engine to transmission). However, in 2004 HD lowered the primary ratio on the 883's. So, for an 883 to gear the same as a 1200 ('04-up) either both the primary gear and chain and front pulley require changing, or a 32 tooth front pulley may be used. No belt change is required, but modification to the cover standoffs is necessary. Also, changing the front or rear pulley makes the speedometer wrong. It can be "recalibrated" at the dealer, by purchasing an aftermarket ignition module with speedometer adjustment, or a speedometer corrector module.

I loved playing with the sprockets on my dirt bikes back when I ran dirt. I agree that changing out the front pully is the easiest way to accomplish what your looking for. And I find that my speedo is off about 3-4mph anyway so I just ride by feel.
