Changing to a 30T transmission sprocket

Can anyone tell me if they have done this modification, if they like it and how difficult it is for someone to do? Some people have talked about changing belts, but the kit that I was looking at changed out the chain.

not that hard to do, will need to pull the inner and outter primary off and everything in between. The job will require a few speciality tools.

if you are changing out the chain then you are doing the compensator change in the primary , not the final drive pulley

if you change the compensator , you will lose cruise control

I changed to 30tooth on a 07.On that year you change to what's called the international belt If I had gone only one tooth change the stock belt would have worked.It made it easier to get in 6th gear a little sooner for highway riding. Look on Andrews Cam website or S&S they have info that's very useful also Bakers.they will list years and gears and the amount each tooth drop and how it will affect your ride

I guess that's what I was talking about is changing the primary sprocket from 32T to 30T to eliminate the compensator.
