Thanks for the reply. You've got the aluminum one I assume. Is there a steel counterpart that I could get from HD? I've heard ppl on here complain about the aluminum ones and quality issues they've had with them wearing too quickly and whatnot.

I remember someone a while back getting a steel 29 tooth from harley for around $60? That wouldn't be bad at all.

Here's a website with a Pulley listed for ALL SPORTSTERS

I got the 30t on Wednesday, piece of cake. The belt was plenty long enough, I slipped the pulley on with the rear wheel still on the bike. The rpms dropped about 500 at 70mph and taking off in first was still smooth and quick. Thank you all for your helpful responses.

Glad everything worked out good for you. I really like having a 30t when I'm flying on the interstate.

Default Can I put a smaller sprocket set on my Firebolt

I have a 2005 Firebolt 900. I want to make an acceleration improvment.I'm thinking quite a few teeth less. My question is are there sprockets available and how many teeth should I subtract.

Default Secondary Sprocket Nut

Mr. TeeGass,

Like the second posting in this thread says, it is a "reverse" or Left Hand threaded nut. It is installed with Loctite, so you may have to lean on it.

Turn it clockwise to remove it and counter-clockwise to install it.

Mine was a huge PITA to get off; took me two days. I made a sprocket locker to hold the sprocket tight while I whaled on the nut. They fastened it on with red Loctite and I started to doubt it was reverse threaded a couple of times when I couldn't get it to shift. Eventually I got it to move by standing on the 30" tommy bar on the socket I was using.

If there is any chance whatsoever you might take it off again then don't use red Loctite on it, use blue.

Per an '01 X1 Parts Catalog, 40285-91B is listed as a sprocket kit (bolts, spacer, seals, ect) and 40288-95 is just the sprocket for a 27T.

Hope that helps,
-DH
