I got a buddy with an 04 Road Star with aftermarket wheels and pulleys. The pulley is worn out and the belt is slipping. The problem is none of us can tell what brand they are. They have no names or numbers anywhere. The pulley is 1 1/8 X 70 tooth. It looks like a HD style pulley. do any of you have any info that might help us?

Harley certainly had 1-1/8 X 70 tooth pulleys ... no idea if they fit but cheap enough on Ebay to try out.

2004 Yamaha Road Star ... 5VN-25470-00-00 ... $633 new? Ouch.

There are companies which renovate old pulleys with new teeth ... try http://www.supermax.net. Find it hard to think it could not be done.

If it works out, and saves your friend a few hundred bucks, he owes me a drink.

As an aside, the new 1" belts are stronger than the old belts, so dropping down a width might also be an option.
