    Last night bike ran rough----pulled over to see belt chewed.
    Bike is 05 electraglide w/100800 miles--replaced belt around 40,000
    had pack man cracks--paid to have it done.
    Friend rescued me w/ pickup---home safe.

    Would like to do it myself this time.
    How do I replace belt--have manual---
    Any advice as to where to get parts---what type to use?

    -probally replace front and rear sprockets--any other recommendations.
    Would greatly appreciate any advice.

    Thanks

    It is hard to beat the step by step procedures given in the Factory Service manual if thats the one you have. Smart move to replace the sprockets at the same time. Be sure to torque everything back to factory specs.

    As for where to get the parts, I would stick with HD parts and I order mine from Mark at M&M cyles. Great guy to do business with and good pricing to boot :s

    I agree with Mark at M&M. Best place to deal with IMO.
