This is an involved project, and would take me two days to type in a step by step.

If you need to ask this question here on this forum, you'd be better off to let a bike shop do this, or at least buy a shop manual that will take you through step by step.

A few sticking points:
You'll need to remove the rear wheel, and also the rear suspension swingarm/softtail to install a new belt.
This will require a lift to get the rear wheel/tire off the ground.
Also, the entire primary drive needs to come apart, so you can remove the inner primary cover to access the transmission pulley.
This operation will require either an impact wrench, or a torch, to remove the engine sprocket nut, as it's torqued to about 160-180 Ft/Lbs, with RED LocTite!

The labor blue book lists this as an 6-10 hour job.

1987 HD FXRP install final drive bely

Hi Anonymous, This procedure is not for weekend do it yourself type. It requires special factory tools, knowledge of service bullitens that affected this particular year and model, plus the experience of doing a complete vehicle alignment, which requires the use of 2 eight foot aluminum "L" beams, this is not for the faint of heart. That being said you should take it to your local dealer and have them replace it, and while you are there order a service manual, it will save you a ton of money in the long run. Good luck
