    Did you get your front sprocket sorted? I am planning on converting my '09 Victory engine to chain drive by machining the front pulley down to take a welded on (or bolt on if I have room) sprocket. I am planning on using a 17T front sprocket to help the chain clear the swinging arm. If I had a second pulley that fits your machine I could make two as easy as one? I am a road bike so I am looking at 17/40 with my different tyre size.... with the ability to change the rear to adjust as needed. Let me know if I can be of assistance.... slight obstacle... I am in New Zealand.

    @agusta74 i do have an extra front pulley. I’ve thought of doing the same thing. Like this:

    Did some more testing and had a good time riding with the sport bike crowd…

    Great picture. You seem to have pretty good cornering clearance to the motor, what have you done to improve that? I can see the high pegs and lack of lower frame rails, have you raised the bike on it's suspension?

    Eagerly anticipating your installation of the chain drive, so can play with the gearing.

    Absolutely. Hoping to knock that out this winter.

    #RaceBike got a few updates. We’ll see how it does at the next track day event this weekend.

    How did you raise the suspension?

    mx Hope it's not major surgery or real expensive, I've got a 2013 Judge project and I'm thinking inverted forks, crossbike wheels and a little more ground clearance would be just perfect.
    Not real fond of the spoke wheels but the 60 spoke ones on the CR LE would look pretty sharp. Just happen to have a set.

    Can reverse psychology be used on the lowering link route?

    mx Don't know. I kinda eye balled that and thought, well, maybe.
    Looking forward to up's reply, obviously he's figured it out. Judging by the clip of him on the track it works pretty damned good.

    Up front I lengthened the forks internally and on the rear I’m running a Penske shock with custom links we machined. Yes, opposite approach as lowering links.
