Twin Power Introduces Rear Chain Conversion Kit For Touring Models

Owners of 2009 and later Cush Drive Harley-Davidson® touring models can easily convert from rear belt to Chain Drive thanks to Twin Power. With the popularity of today’s high horsepower and large cubic inch engines, superchargers, turbochargers and more, the stock rear drive belt can only transmit so much power before it breaks. To eliminate the expensive, labor intensive replacement process, Twin Power comes to the rescue of dresser-riding horsepower junkies with a bolt-on Rear Chain Conversion Kit.

“The chain conversion kit installs easily with no modifications,” says James Simonelli, Brand Manager for Twin Power. “Besides being able to transmit much more power than the belt, the kit allows easy re-gearing for those who want to make better use of their 6-speed transmission. Plus, swapping the rear belt to chain drive is far less work than changing a broken belt. You don’t need to remove the swingarm.” Simonelli adds, “Look for similar high-quality kits for Sportster, FXRs and Dynas soon.”

The kit comes with a 24-tooth transmission sprocket and 51-tooth rear sprocket (P/N 216096), equivalent to the stock gearing. They are made from heat-treated tool steel and all the hardware is Grade 8. The hub is made from high-strength billet aluminum with a factory-type, black, finish. It is assembled with bearing and spacer, and is ready to install.

Both 55-tooth (P/N 216097) and 58-tooth (P/N 216098) sprockets are available separately. A 530×120 link chain is recommended but not included and must be cut to size, allowing the end user to choose a chain based on their personal preferences.

100% made in the USA, the Rear Chain Conversion Kit (P/N 216095) retails for $599.00 and the sprockets retail for $139.00 each. The kit and sprockets can be ordered through your local Tucker Rocky | Biker’s Choice dealer. or on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.  To inquire about becoming a Tucker Rocky dealer for products and accessories, the New Dealer Development Department at (817) 258-9255 or [email protected].

    That is a much needed product. I am glad to see twin power bringing some USA made products like this and the manual chain adjuster to the market.

    When I built my trikes, using chain drives was a priority. Not only for what I feel is a stronger and cheaper part, but to able to replace a chain without removing not only the inner and outer primary covers and clutch, but the rear wheels, swingarm, and on trikes, removing and splitting the rear axle housing. Makes a multiple hour job into 10 minutes. Worth it to me.

    I hope there is enough slot on 09 newer swingarm to get any adjustments on chain Not much on earlier swingarms 02-08 good chains don’t stretch much but they do stretch,

    What about a good chain guard now…?

    It says for “FXR” soon, i will have usage for that one.
    I swap the Belt for a chain on every bike, but my main reason is the look – i can`t stand the look of belts, a chain looks like a real metal motorcycle part, but those belts just look too “soft”

    But one question i have : On my Evo Softail i use a chain along with a Kawasaki jerk damper on the wheel.
    With the permanent “bucking” of the Twin vs a four banger not a bad thing regarding chain life and drive comfort.
    The belt usually does similar in function.
    So when swapping for a chain on a stock or other non-jerk damper wheel, isn`t one part missing ?
