Twin Power

Cush drive chain conversion kit

2009 and later cush drive Harley-Davidson touring models can easily convert from rear belt to chain drive thanks to this new bolt-on rear chain conversion kit from Twin Power.
“The chain conversion kit installs easily with no modifications,” says James Simonelli, Brand Manager for Twin Power. “Besides being able to transmit much more power than the belt, the 100 percent U.S.A made kit allows easy re-gearing for those who want to make better use of their 6-speed transmission. Plus, swapping the rear belt to chain drive is far less work than changing a broken belt. You don’t need to remove the swingarm.” Simonelli adds: “Look for similar high-quality kits for Sportsters, FXRs and Dynas soon.”
The kit comes with a 24-tooth transmission sprocket and 51-tooth rear sprocket, equivalent to the stock gearing. They are made from heat-treated tool steel and Grade 8 hardware. The hub is made from high-strength billet aluminum with a factory-type black finish. It is assembled with bearing and spacer and is ready to install.
Both the 55-tooth and 58-tooth sprockets are available separately. A 530x120 link chain is recommended, but not included, and must be cut to size, allowing the end user to choose a chain based on their personal preferences.
