    WTB 155t 1-1/8" Belt - Or Pulleys - Or Chain Conversion

    Guy's, Please help, I snapped the 155t belt on my 03 XB9R, they are getting ridiculously hard to find, riding season is finally started here in MN and second time out, barely even out of the driveway, grab second and as the front tire comes up the belt let's go Money is tight due to an unforseen move that took place and work getting slow, however my 3d printing is getting dialed & I just got a roll of ASA, the new ABS, and Ive got a right side scoop in 3d Cad that I'm going to be prototyping within a week or two.

    If anyone would want to do some trading I could really use 155t belt, or 27t & 65t pulley plus tensioner & 128t belt, or a legit turn key chain conversion set up for the 03 XB9R, I can do 3d printing of pla, pla+, petg, petg+, tpu, and others, I also have Harley take off parts for a few models, and some other trade items. Otherwise I can pay cash, but I really need to do it on the cheap if possible. Thanks for checking out my post, lmk if you can help or got a solution, and be safe out there!

    I'm not sure what exactly the belt conversion needs but here are the first 2 results from an eBay search, super cheap, and from the same place no less, so they should help with shipping:

    You could probably do a chain conversation for the same price, but I prefer the belt.

    There are NO 1203 models produced for 2003 model year. Only 984 models. 2003 specific drive belt NOT difficult in the least to source for 2003 models. You should tone down your riding style or go Jap. Your 20 year old Buell will only continue to break if ridden in this manner.

    2003 ALL XB9 DRIVE-BELT AS FOLLOWS:
    DIMENSIONS---155 TOOTH---11MM PITCH---1.125 INCH WIDTH

    Awesome info! Thanks Barrett

    One would hope a 'performance motorcycle' like a Buell could take a wheelie or ten without catastrophic failure and a walk home "Fragile" isn't a word that comes to mind when someone says Buell

    As a sportbike, a Buell should be able to wheelie and not break a belt. These bikes are known for being robust.

    Thanks for advising me of my misspelled word, but I am not a Knight I'm glad you like Aarons pic! He took that one of me when we went to go to a barn raising.
