    My question is about the rear wheel sprockets on the 07 and later bikes. Harley went from a 70 tooth sprockets on 06 and earlier models to a 66 tooth sprocket on the 07 6 speed and later models. Apparently there is a belt width difference to. I would like to change out to a 70 tooth but have not found one yet. I understand there is a gear in the primary you can change to compensate?

    What are you trying to accomplish? There are different compensator sprockets available, and Baker uses a change there to accomplish the rpm reduction in their DD6 builders kit (and assembled trannies!) while maintaining a 1:1 ratio in 6th gear. Supposed to be a more efficient 6th this way.

    I am trying to pick up more bottom takeoff power. When momma and I are on the bike...thats a 300lb load, and the bike struggles to take off. I would prefer more bottom end "oomph" than a reduction in highway rpm and I understand a sprocket change will give me this?

    Hmm, Me and Momma together are about 450 LBS, and my bike takes off fine. Clutch adjusted properly? Try a few more revs before you hit the friction zone (I don't mean prep for a wheelie, just a FEW more revs)

    man I was way off on that. I am 275 and momma is...well, lets just say over 200 :nosad. My math was bad on that one :D My 05 had better bottom end pull than my 07. its like changing the gearing in a car, going from 3:23's to 3:73's your takeoff is better but the rpm at highway speeds is higher.

    Thank you TQuentin. I was considering Andrews cams for this coming winter. It looks like the 216321 or the 216326 would be great. the bike has no mods at all at this time and when I do this I would like the combo to be right on but I also want the bike to remain dependable.
