You may have to invest in some final drive gears though.
That one is easy for me as I'm not running the retrictibe Sporster rear brake hub.

It uses (Suzuki (Shhhhh ! Don't say anything) rear sprockets. I can probably get down to 2.00 if need be.

I'll have to go look at my notes but I think it's geared for just under 130 right now. I would have to take a full set of sprockets with me. I have from 15 to 25 (24 ?) in my gearing box at the moment but I think only 50 and 48 rears. Might be a 46 on there at the moment.

Not know how wheel spin will effet it I have no idea what to gear it for.

I'm presuming I can just pick a target and allow something for spin and something for the tire growth, but how much, I don't know.

If I only have to go 125 I can gear it down ?
