Hi All, I purchased a 2004 Roadking a few months back which have 11" 412. I am 270lbs and sometimes ride 2 up I just purchased 12" 440 w/heavy duty springs and am concerned by going the extra inch would this affect my drive belt tension by increasing the angel of the rear swing arm. I am on a learning curve but seem to over analyze and research to the point of paranoia. Any more knowledgable persons advice would be appreciated. Thanks

johnny your on to something

the streetglide and electraglides have different belt settings. streetglide is 1" lower in rear and also has a tighter setting, 1/4"-5/16" i believe but don't quote me on that for sure. the electraglides i believe have 1" more travel thus a belt adjustment of 3/8"-7/16" i believe. so i totally see your point here.
