The ONLY reason I can figure to convert to chain is for ease of changing the chain vs the hassle of belt swap.

What say you?

Yikes! $1395!man I feel poor!

Yeah, for $1395 more than the cost of a new belt. Get a new belt and go for another 100K miles.

Even get a new belt and pay the dealership to install it. Still less.

I bought a 750 Kawasaki for that back in the 70's it was only 2 years old.

I dont see the point. One of the reasons i bought a harley was for the maintenance free belt drive. While the chain itself might be easier to replace, the inner sprocket would still be a pain. I seem to remember most chain sprocket/combos needed replacement around the 15k mark, at least they did on the older bikes i used to ride. That doesnt take into account all the extra cleaning and oiling you have to do. The only bikes i would even consider a chain drive on these days would be a dual sport or adventure bike.

That comes from somebody who hasn't owned a belt... once you go belt... well you know the rest.

Nah... that doesn't count. Just cause you may sell strap ons and dildo's doesn't mean you're gay. Unless you use them with your boyfriend.

Slight differences... sometimes have a major difference in effect.
