    Default Why engine and sprocket differences by year?

    Been talking to some sportster owners and I'm getting a lot of different info on the spacing between the frame rails and the rear pulley. Why does this change from year to year?

    I have a 2000 and I was wondering what mine is. I've got a bit of a basket case right now, but I threw the axle and everything on it together in a hardtail I have laying around, and my gap is slightly less than 1/16". It seemed a little closer, but I have all the spacers and in the correct t orientation.

    If it matters to anyone I've found that an 06 is 3/8" and an 02 is .213"

    Are you trying to compare rubber mount to solid mount frames?

    The two frames don't match because no reason exists that they should as they are different frames for different bottom ends.

    You are working with an aftermarket hardtail section or frame, and you are wondering about differences in measurements? You have more faith in the consistency of aftermarket parts than I do.

    That said, your '00 and the '02 are the same series of chassis, but the '06 rubber mount is a whole different animule.
