Default Chain conversion

I just went with a belt to chain conversion. My question is, how do you guys shim out the front sprocket? Do you use a big ass washer? It needs to come out about an 1/8 to 3/16.

I used the zippers conversion. It actually came with the correct spacer..... I would recommend getting that. I would imagine you could get it from nrhs; that was where i got my conversion? Are you using dished or flat sprockets?

You can order offset sprockets from the Drag Specialties catalouge. Most shops can get them for you

Question: Does your front and rear sprocket line up now if you have it installed like normal? if so then you do not need an offset sprocket. All you need is a different spacer under the front sprocket. You probably have a .600 wide one now? You should need a .800 one. I sell them for $35.

Or do you need the sprocket to be out farther to line up with the rear sprocket?
