Now looking to get a replacement belt and pulleys for my Pan, think there will be any issues running the BDL 1.5 belt set up with the BDL pulleys and the Rivera Primo Pro clutch in that BDL basket?

I never mixed the baskets between the BDl and the Pro Clutch. I think the pro clutch parts are dimensionally different. That would be a good call to Rivera Tech Support.

Primo Rivera (562) 907-2600

If Im not mistaken, I believe the difference is in the shape of the dawgs in the clutch basket versus the clutch plate/steels. Some clutch baskets use the squared dawgs while others use the round studs, same with the clutch/steel plates. BDL uses both for different year-group applications.

But, the advice above in contacting tech support may be best.

Anyone have experience with this Belt set up?
Seems like a good price at $200

FWIW I'm running a Primo Pro Clutch in BDL clutch basket on my bike. And I had great luck talking to tech support at both as I worked through a few clutch issues, though no fitment issues between the BDL clutch hub and primo. Things were waaayyy too tight using the 62 tooth BDL basket that came the kit (part of the parts pile when I picked up the project), even with the trans all the way forward, against the seat post, and using the BE belt. Instead of trying "creative" ways to make it work, I called BDL and they recommended a 61 tooth basket - easy peasy. Long story longer, after that call I tried a 61 tooth primo basket that I found at a swap (because I didn't want to spend $200 on the BDL replacement) and that fixed the tight belt problem but the hub ended up rubbing the inside of the tin primary cover, so I finally ordered the BDL 61k and it's gold.

I guess the point is there's a lot of interchangeability here, and also I found tech support at both Primo and BDL to be very helpful.

i run that belt from karata with the primo rivera clutch, all goes together just fine. make sure you have a silver and not gold diaphragm spring, gold is heavy duty and way to much spring for a stock bike. my set up is in a 39 big flathead and has tens of thousands of miles on it. the karata clutch basket is better quality than the other belt companies, replaceable basket dogs, two piece front pulley, making roadside belt replacement easier since the rivera style clutch can not be removed roadside. i had run my belt loose for about 10k miles and stripped the teeth off the belt, so be sure to tension belt properly. V-twin makes a rivera knock off called a york clutch, all parts inter change with rivera but are sold with a gold spring for about 300.00 bucks, by the way the diaphragm is a stock harley spring and cheap as dirt.
