Installing BDL Open Primary HDWRENCH???

I am posting this for a friend of mine.

He is installing a BDL Open 3.35 inch primary belt drive.

Are there any special tools needed. Anything at all anyone can think of, pullers, .... anything the common HD Toolbox wouldnt have.

Can floorboards fit without modification? If mods nec, anyone know of any spacers to move them out a little. doesnt want to move forward, just to the side.

Any tips and last minute advice.

Not Steve, but have installed a couple...The only real specialty tool you "need" would be the primary bearing race puller. There are a couple ways around it(cutting), but having the puller makes it 10 times easier. Other than the sockets to remove and install comp nut and clutch basket a long strait edge would bo good to check alignment. I would have all new seals on hand incase any are leaking when dis-assembled.

As for the floorboard, not sure will have to look it up. All the bikes i have installed were forward controls. You may or may not have to lose the heel shifter though.

Take your time and check alignment. Dont force anything. If you want to look at the instructions before you get the belt drive, they are here....

Good luck!
Its not that hard.

Oops, just reread your post. You have a BDL, somehow i missed that.
Assuming they use a sealed inner bearing, it should be the same process.
If your going to buy the tool, the dealer wont sell the H-D version. Go the Georges garage and pick it up. Its less expensive and great quality.

I think he is just going to cut the old one off very carefully. According to a couple other guys he talked to, he shouldnt need a new one because it will be a sealed bearing right?

Will that have to be pressed on?

I just dont want him to get caught with his pants down at all this weekend. I think he is gonna go for it friday night, so he can make a shop run if he needs to on Saturday Morning.

Still need an idea about the floorboards though, anyone????

i have installed teh BDL with outer bearing support on a 2002 Fatboy.

I was able to keep the floorboards although I did have to space them out using some chrome spacers.

You will need to loose the heel shifter.

attached are a couple of pictures...

one other thing...

i did end up moving and replacing the kickstand with an after market one.

Could have used the stock but thought it looked bad and was a pain to get to.

I guess I am a day short on this sorry. Chop got it nailed, however I would be extremely careful when it comes to cutting on the output shaft of the trans. A locing bar is helpful when tightening the crank nut. If you are using a chrom rotor cover make sure to go back and re check the tq once you are done. Red loctite on the clutch and crank nut.

Is there any other way to get that off without a puller or cutting it...

Guy at HD said to just carefully dremel it off...

Should he just bite the bullet and buy the 120$ puller....

I also had trobule getting the bearing race off.

I had the tool but could not get it to slide behing the race because race was in to far on shaft. Probably my fault when I installed new transmission mainshaft for 240" wide tire kit. Anyway, i nothed the back of the race using dremel and was then able to use the tool to get the race off.

Other issues as follows were because of wide tire kit:

- needed different offset spacer at crankshaft.

- Needed longer jackshaft. Initially used one obtained from BDL, but one time when was starting kicked-back due to weak battery and snapped the jackshaft in half...note that engine is 131inch, 11.2:1 static CR with 4 compression releases (2 per-head) to aid in starting. Switched to Tauer Machine 3-piece jackshat and have not had any problems.
