I will get pic later but think of a solid disk with a pulley on the edge, no cut outs and no chrome just polished solid disk. Not pretty but i use saddle bags so you cannot see it anyway.Excuse the hijack fellas. Bytehead, this custom 61 tooth rear pulley you mentioned....could you give us some info, if not the Scootworks. I want so bad to do something about the eyesore Kawi put on, but we don`t have many choices. I sent an email to Barons suggesting that a chrome cover would be worth their while to fab up, since a ton of us 9`ers would gobble them up in a hurry, but never heard back. Would love to see what what you have...thanks!
Some have reported a slight loss of power but to be honest I believe you just have to adjust and learn the new shifting points. Also there're only a handfull or two of riders that truly have upgraded both pulleys and most if not all highly recommend it. Riding around town is a dream because you don't have to shift up or down as often as before and on highway I still have plenty of passing power even when two up and going true 80mph. Let me put it this way, I ride with a group of big boys and head to head I can keep up with a Fat Boy, Heritage soft tail and a VTX 1300 so this tells you there is no loss of power. Now my other friends with a Road Glide, Ultra Classic SE and the big monster of the VTX 1800 I stand no chance but it was the same before the upgrades. People pay top dollar for this pulleys even when used so give it a shot and if you don't like it you can allways sale them and possibly not loose a dime.V TWIN - thanks for informative response.
With your setup (both pulleys, 200 rear), have you ever felt that the bike was now too sluggish off the line or @ mid speeds around town? I am considering both pulleys + 200, but am concerned about loss of power with higher gearing.
Ordered my rear pulley from Meancycles 3 weeks ago, and have recieved the same messaging about scootworks moving and consolidating manufacturing. All I want is my pulley, and have not been able to get an answer as to when they will ship. I know Meancycles is not happy (as they have forward me the responses from Scootworks), but this is getting old fast. Hopefully, we'll get a status soon....I put front pulley on last year that I bought through meancycles. very fast shipping. Dec,31 2011 I ordered the rear from scootworks because they had a christmas special on and I have yet to receive it. I sent 4 emails and got one reply saying that they moved to a larger facility and would get a better answer on my order by the end of the day (that was 2 weeks ago) FYI so hopefully I will have it soon
