    Tired of breaking belts on your 2003-2005 model year Victory? Here is the solution:

    1) Buy a Conquest Customs Overdrive drive pulley for the front. This will help correct the gearing and belt length needs for the second step…..

    2) Buy a later style, Kevlar reinforced belt, Victory pn 3211102 that was used from 2006-2017. These are the “narrow” belts and are tremendously more robust. I’ve never seen one randomly snap like the old “wide” belt would.

    3) Buy a later style rear pulley from a 2006-2017 model (they were all the same, just different colors and finishes). Then press in custom bushings (I can sell them to you, or you can make your own on a lathe) to make up for the difference on bolt diameter from older style to newer style.

    Even though you’ve have a significant expense in the conversion, it’ll work out in the long haul when you’re not stranded far away from home with a broken belt….again!

    By my math, that should put a TC rpms around 3000@ 74.45 mph, assuming the rear sprocket is a 70 tooth one. If anyone has done this, how does it affect 1st gear in driveability?

      Oops, the OD pulley is 32 tooth, so 72 mph.

    Rylan, After you build up my engine this fall, would the front OD pulley still be advantageous on longer road trips?

    New here. Would like to order the bushings. I have been wanting to do this for awhile

      I’ve not made the bushings for years. I advised the last guy that asked to just have the local machine shop whittle a set up.
