Harley-Davidson Sportster Chain Conversion Kit from Zipper

Feel like you'd add some more personality to your Sportster? How about converting the classic H-D belt final drive to a chain one? Sounds a bit wacko for some, bit Zipper Performance though this was a really sweet idea.

So here's the chain conversion kit which will breathe new life in your Sportster, allowing you to change the transmission ratio, load in a wider rear tire more easily and give you a good reason to get dirty every couple hundred miles or so.

Zipper's chain kit comes in two flavors, the RK Pro, loaded with O-rings and the RK DR, which is incredibly strong , but is a non-o-ring design. And DR stands for drag racing, so yo can really mess around with it.

The front sprocket is steel, the rear one is high-grade aluminium, and customers can choose from several ratios. With prices staring at $267.95 (€199), all you have to to is ID your Sportster and head over to Zipper Performance and make a choice. Cool, cool, cool!
