Enclosed Belt Drive Primary
Well, I'm finally getting my motor put back together and in the process of the removal I found that my primary chain and the sprockets are pretty much toast as the previous owner using the dealer as his service point never had any adjustments done therefore the premature wear after +30,000 mi. Since I already have the bike torn down this far my thoughts are that I may as well go ahead and either go back together with new sprockets and chain or go belt drive.
After doing some research and pricing I have come to the conclusion that it may be a better option to just go ahead and switch over to a belt drive primary as they claim it can't stand to more power and there is a lot less maintenance. I am thinking of going with an enclosed system as to save on money, specifically this kit: http://www.jpcycles.com/product/600-792
In addition, I am going back together with original my motor setup; a 95 cu in big bore kit, with the following upgrades: S&S 3 piece flywheel assembly and timken bearing conversion courtesy of S&S speed shop, +.005 high compression pistons 10.5:1 , +.005 cylinder bore. Keeping the 257 cams, and the heads are good; CNC ported and polished. Already has the upgraded SE cam plate with the hydraulic tensioner.
What are your guy's thoughts, experiences, and suggestions as to what I should go with if indeed this Rivera kit is the right one?
