Sorry, was just thinking out loud ......unless you have a cush drive in the rear wheel, that chain is gonna trash the tranny big time.....although I'm guessing in that chassis the Buell engine will never see its true potential......just wish you builders of 'fashion' bikes would stick to using ordinary H-D motors instead of wasting an engine developed for a performance sports bike :)


:headbang: :headbang: :headbang: I second that

But maybe he just bought an engine on its own? and lets face it if you lot saw an engine advertised you tight fuckers wouldn`t buy it anyway you would just tell everyone its too much money! "just another dreamer" would be the saying of the day! lol lOl

Current ride: 1125CR & HD Hardtail
Location: London.
I'm currently building a hardtail, with a 1200 sportster engine in it - not from a Buell - and I was advised by several people that a chain would be better than a belt, due to it being a hardtail a belt would be more likely to snap, although that is for the sake of the belt/chain - not the tranny.

Surely that would depend on how tight the belt was set as per the X1 and the the old 'top of the swinging arm to bottom of the swinging arm' ratio -
