Re: Belt drives

The '80-83 FXB and FXSB were belt primary and chain final.

The '83 FXDG (Willy G's custom FXWG) was dual belt; earlier FXWG's were chain/chain, and later ones were chain/belt.

Re: Fuses on new wiring on our vintage bikes

The problem with fuses is you can go through a lot of them while troubleshooting a fault; not good at 2am on backroads... A blade type circuit breaker is a cheap problem solver:

Re: Shovel Motor in Softail Frame?

I recently installed a 103" S&S pan motor and 5-speed transmission into a 1988 Softail frame. No frame issues at all.
