Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy
I am considering changing the final drive on my '95 Fatboy from Belt Drive to Chain and Sprocket after having to replace the belt AGAIN after snapping it twice in 20,000km. What are the Pro's & Con's of Belt vs Chain? I'd be grateful for some knowledgeable advice
Belts = quite, durable, less cost to replace.
Chain = noisy, last longer, messy oil spots on floor, good ones cost $400.00 or more, have to keep adjusted, hard to break. Im a chain man myself.

Belts alone can run $200 plus labor. I'm considering the swap myself on 2005 Road King. It snaps belts when downshifting under no real stress.
