That's just soo cool a trike build thread .... I wish i could give you a hand and have a laugh at the same time .... I just found out there is 1 HD trike on our island, (in a to be opening HD shop) fully loaded .... Did not see it yet .

I see your fender has scratches and fearing taken off, did you fall recently ?

Couple more pics before trike disassembly. Has to come apart to install on bike as well as installing the belt.

That's a good-looking kit. Who makes it?
That rear pulley looks a bit larger than the normal rear pulley. If that's the case, it's like having an underdrive pulley on the tranny :)

Let me know if you would think there is enough adjustment to put an under drive pulley on. I have this one in a leman version on my wife's and I think it will help greatly.

Just measure PCD and hole size etc .... Sure somebody can chip-in regarding 2007 vegas fitment size ??

Edit, and if the EBC brake pads are the same numbers for both rear caliper's that should indicated someting ?

Maybe the other members have better knowledge about this ?

Depending on what year you have, and I'm not sure of the date, but Champion bought Lehman. Should be the same underneath. The stock pulley is 70 tooth where the Champion is 74. That's my count anyway.

Just by looking at pictures I found on the net a 2012 XC caliper will NOT work in a 2007 Vegas.

I've got leman on the outside champion on the inside, I've yet to take the body off I just didn't know if there was enough adjustment in the slide for an under drive pulley or not.

Looks to be about a 2" slot for adjustment. When installed it will be hard to tell as to where it ends up as the adjuster plate sandwiches between the swingarm and the trailer hitch. Ill see if I can make some marks and get you that info. I you don't have a trailer hitch on yours you should be able to see it just by looking under it.
