Hello, I have a 2006 carburetor with Hammer 1275 kit and Andrews N2 / V2 cam
Do you recommend a good chain kit configuration?

Thank you very much

530 Chain. Usually 106 links, but you buy a 110 or longer then take links out to be sure.

RK racing is a good chain, but they have many grades, plain, o ring , x-ring.

tonystylec, mine runs 110 link 530 chain on 22/48 sprockets. One word of caution, original chain drive Sportsters
can sometimes have clearance issues with ultra wide chains. You might want to check with the supplier if there is
a chain width limit on your conversion kit. Something like a DID VX2 chain is normally fine and is my preferred chain.
X-ring chains hold lube around the pins but the rollers still need lubing; something that is often neglected. That will
affect the chain durability much more than using an ultra heavy chain. Use a chain oiler and it should last years.

I bought mine from road6customs. Had kits for $199 with everything needed, but it's a 520 not 530.. Was perfect for me cause i WANTED a 520! I don't believe a sportster needs a big, heavy 530 chain. And lots of us are drag racing with WELL over 100hp! I paid more cause when i bought the kit i opted for a gold chain. Think it was $220. Have been running it for 3 years now.

I put the Zippers chain drive conversion on my '06 many years ago, very good quality kit. A big note is that you can't go off of what the solid mount bikes guys run or suggest, the 2004+ rubbermounts are different. Some important things applicable to your bike:

1. Per Zippers, you need to run a 25 or 26 tooth front sprocket/52-55 rear on an '04+ to clear the bottom passenger peg mount. If you cut off the mounts, you can go as low as a 19 tooth I believe.
2. If you run a 25 or 26 tooth front sprocket you will need to run a fairly large rear sprocket to get the gearing close to stock (if that's what you're after) and it will look kinda dumb IMO. My 54 tooth rear sprocket is a little too big looking for my taste, I plan to go with a 21/22 front/48 rear combo here soon.
3. The OEM sprocket cover will need to be removed or trimmed so that the chain won't contact it at times.
4. My RK Pro 530 o-ring chain has no clearance issues with my wider than stock 160 Metzeler rear tire, it's close but has never touched.

Here you can see the Zippers kit (24 front/54 rear) on my '06 along with how I modded my sprocket cover to work (ignore my semi-rusty chain, long story there):






Give me a shout if you have any other questions.

Hi, thanks for the answers you are fantastic.
I'm sorry for my bad English but i'm Italian

Just yesterday I realized this problem:

My current belt clash on the bottom passenger peg mount







I noticed that the belt is worn on one side




This problem will have been caused because I mounted shock absorbers bitubo 12,5" + FreeSpirits Risers Block (2,36")











Based on this data, can you give me more information for purchasing the kit?

Many thanks for your time

That looks to be the case. A chain may make that contact problem much worse. The first thing I would do is remove the FreeSpirits Risers Blocks for now.
