Twin Power

Chain conversion and 32-tooth compensator eliminator kits

Following the success of the cush drive chain conversion kits they introduced earlier this year, Twin Power has announced a new line of chain conversion kits for ’86-‘00 FXR, ‘86-‘06 FLH, ’91-‘05 Dyna, ’91-‘05 Sportster, ’06-‘17 Dyna and ’07-‘17 Softail models.

“Changing from belt to chain drive is a must for high load, high horsepower and racing applications. Anyone who’s ever been stranded due to a broken belt knows this,” says James Simonelli, Twin Power Brand Manager. “These kits take the guesswork out of converting your bike from belt to chain drive and are designed for stock chassis and wheel applications. Kits duplicate the factory belt drive ratio, but additional sprockets are available to adjust for specific conditions.”
The kits include a 4140 heat-treated steel transmission sprocket, transmission sprocket spacer, fully machined (not stamped) heat-treated steel rear sprocket with a textured black powder-coated finish, dual bolt pattern sprocket spacer (where applicable), and grade 9 hardware (where applicable) - just add a chosen 530 x 120 link rear chain and cut to size.
“Drive chain is like religion and politics; everyone has their favorite,” says Simonelli. “We leave it up to the end user to pick their desired brand and type, of which Biker’s Choice offers a wide assortment.”
Also seen here is a new Twin Power 32-tooth compensator eliminator kit. “Last year, we introduced the 34-tooth compensator eliminator sprocket to our product line and it was a great success. The addition of this new kit will give riders more options for updating and maintaining their motorcycle. One of the advantages of this kit is that it works with any stock length primary chain,” says James.

Said to provide a 6 percent reduction in gearing, which improves acceleration and makes 6th gear more usable, eliminating the compensator reduces spinning weight by 4.8 lbs. and improves starting. The manual tensioner allows precise chain adjustment and increases engine, transmission and primary bearing life. Alternator rotor replacement is not required regardless of year group; however, ECM recalibration for the cruise control and 6th gear indicator light is needed in order for them to function properly.
