My 06 "Fat Strat"

The "Fat Strat"



I bought the bike on e-bay from a Lt.Col. in Topeka Ks. I flew from Orlando, Fl to Topeka, Ks. and rode the bike home. The Col. made most of the mods but I have added quite a few myself.
The 61 tooth Harley sprocket gets the R's down quite a bit. I'm turning 2600 at 80 MPH. No problem pulling the tall gears, these bikes are torque monsters.
Thanks for looking.

Fat Strat - I'm not one for too much bling, but DAMN! That is an incredible looking bike. It has the look of haulin' ass just sitting still.

Slippage is slightly more than with the stock 71 tooth. I consciously achieve full engagement quickly, to reduce slippage. The result is full engagement at a slightly lower RPM. I wouldn't want to be taking off from a dead stop pulling a loaded trailer up a hill, but solo or two up, no problem.
The number of teeth on the belt escapes me right now, but, it's ten less than stock. It's also a Harley belt.
