Harley Davidson Drive belt size chart

If you require a replacement drive belt for your Harley-Davidson motorcycle, it’s crucial to understand the specific size requirements. Fortunately, determining the appropriate drive belt size is not a daunting task. Two key factors to consider when selecting a replacement belt are the number of teeth and the belt width. The number of teeth on the belt varies depending on the motor installed in your Harley-Davidson, typically ranging between 125 and 150 teeth. Additionally, belt widths can range from approximately 20mm (equivalent to 2/3 inch) to 1-1/2 inches wide.

To accurately determine the suitable belt for your bike, it is essential to know the size of the rear wheel pulley. Rear pulleys with a higher tooth count necessitate a corresponding belt with a higher tooth count. This ensures a proper fit in terms of circumference and overall length. For your convenience, we have provided a helpful table below that outlines various belt sizes, teeth counts, and rear pulley dimensions. By utilizing this table, you can easily cross-reference and identify compatible replacement options for your beloved Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

When it comes to motorcycle drive systems, there are three main types: shaft drive, chain drive, and belt drive. Shaft drives transmit power from the gearbox to the rear wheel through a drive shaft. Although they offer durability and low maintenance requirements, they are heavyweight and can be expensive. As a result, shaft-driven motorcycles are less common compared to chain-driven and belt-driven counterparts.

Chain-driven motorcycles utilize a metal chain that connects a set of sprockets. The gearbox features a smaller sprocket, while the back wheel has a larger sprocket. In contrast, belt drive motorcycles function similarly to their chain-driven and shaft-driven counterparts, using a belt (known as a drive belt) connected by pulleys. One pulley is located at the gearbox, and the other is attached to the rear wheel. The belt and pulleys have rubber teeth that interlock, propelling the motorcycle forward. Belt drives require significantly less maintenance than chain drives and tend to offer smoother operation.

In summary, shaft drive, chain drive, and belt drive are the three main types of motorcycle drive systems. While shaft drives are robust but heavy and costly, chain drives utilize a metal chain and sprockets. Belt drives, on the other hand, employ a belt and pulleys, providing a smoother ride with reduced maintenance needs compared to chain drives.

In the realm of motorcycle maintenance, drive belts offer the advantage of reduced upkeep. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to recognize that replacement becomes necessary on occasion. The potential for damage arises when road debris collides with the drive belts, as loose rocks have a propensity to find their way onto the belt, leading to entrapment. Should maintenance efforts be disregarded entirely, the belts may grow brittle and suffer from tooth shear, resulting in slippage on the pulleys. In a dire turn of events, the drive belt may even fracture, leading to severe injuries or a complete loss of power. It is essential to acknowledge that while belt-driven motorcycles require less maintenance when compared to their chain-driven counterparts, the maintenance they do necessitate plays an exceptionally significant role in keeping your motorcycle operational and safe on the road.
