Parts interchange for V2K

I'd like to start a thread that has any known parts from other bikes that work on the V2K all in one place. If it gets big enough, maybe it can be a sticky.

So please post any info you have on parts that you know from experience will work. Hopefully they are from more popular bikes and will be easier to get than V2K parts as the years go by.

I have seen posts on brake parts, fork parts and belts, but I haven't used these myself, so I'll ask those who have first-hand knowledge to post their info.

Hi Folks

Nearly a year ago I broke the bloody Kevlar belt on my VN 2000. While trying to drag a hardly off at the lights. Yes he got away. Bummer.

Anyway, moving on now, as I wasn't moving much at the time. I rang my local Kawa shop here in Australia, nearly $1100 dollars for a new Kevlar belt was going to cost me. Greg from Tassy' told me to inquire about a hardly belt.

Ssoooo,,,,, I lost the drag and now I'm running a carbon fibre hardly belt on my big lady. Talk about adding insult to injury!!!

The carbon belt is from "S & S Performance" SS106-0353 Belt RR; 133T x 1 1/2" FDX'95-99 w/70T PulleyFXR, FLH w/65T Pulley
This belt cost me a tad over $300

Sure the belt is a little narrower and thinner. But being new and carbon fibre, I think it is a hell of a lot stronger. ( Any ideas on this strength bit? )

I hope you all understand how hard it was for me to put this in print that I used ONE AND ONLY ONE hardly part on my big lady. Dam! I know I will not sleep at all tonight now, ( many tears of shame ) Oh the shame of it all!!!!

Enjoy Your Ride ( I do )
Terry

Well Terry you might not want to hear this, I added a HD Street Glide wheel to my VN2000. Certain years and models use the same 25mm axle size and 300mm disc size. You have to open up the caliper mounts and custom cut the spacers but the look is awesome.

Actually, knowing that would be very useful to people who are really into customizing their bike...

FYI,

it's the same exact caliper as the M109 uses. If you need to reorder the pistons and/or seals...
