    Any pros or cons anyone cares to share on a Chrome Cover for the rear sprocket vs. a complete chrome sprocket? For example, are there problems with the covers that justify spending the extra $300+?

    I hear you ultrat. I won't be able to see it either, but since I'm spending money on chrome wheels I figured I might as well go ahead and put on a polished disc and chrome the sprocket. Just want to be sure the chrome covers don't have a tendancy to have problems later on.

    I have had a chrome sprocket cover on my '92 since '93. I had forgotten it was a cover until I read your post.

    Same as Brian and Breeze, chrome cover on '94 FLSTC. It was on for 11 yrs with no problem. I was changing out to a 1" belt and got a great deal on ebay on belt and polished alum. pulley.

    Appreciate all the valuable feedback. Looks like I'll go with a cover vs. complete chrome sprocked.

    I'm constantly amazed by the value of this forum!!!!
