I know that some here have used the Super Max people to over-mold their original sprockets and had good luck with them.

But I've contacted them on a couple occasions about over-molding a couple Harley sprockets that were stone damaged and I've not had any of my e-mails returned.

What about the new MMC steel rear sprocket?

I know it's like apples to oranges, but from what I've seen with you and Zackabilly when he ordered parts for his M3W, getting pricing first is a chore of its own from the dealer and the it takes many weeks to get the parts. I guess we're just spoiled here as we can go to any dealership and pretty much walk a way with what we need.

By the way, have you ever been in contact with Zackabilly? I know he's in FL, but not sure where compared to you. I've tried to PM him about some Goldwing questions, but I've never gotten anything back from him. If you have contacted him, do you have a way that I might reach him?

As far as the rear sprockets go on the M3W, I find it very unusual that they would wear out this quickly. Most Harley aluminum rear sprockets last for 60k to 80k miles unless they're damaged by stones etc.

Good luck with your search for a replacement.

I have had the MMC steel rear sprocket fitted for about 3000 miles now and it still looks good with no signs of wear or squeaks in use. Not sure how much it cost as I got it (and the first and second alloy ones) replaced under warranty and fitted it myself. The down side of the MMC steel sprocket is that it is exactly the same design as the alloy one only in steel, so weighs a ton, well about 14 lbs from memory.

I've had much luck just picking up the phone to deal with the good people at Super Max. As a matter of fact Vyvian prefers it to email.

When the pulley is returned to you it will come to just under 5lbs.


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.

Thanks Michael, I'll keep that in mind for the next time I'm in the market.

I just called Super Max and got in on the next build run of 12 units, there are still a few slots left in this run. Delivery date of Monday, March 28th to Super Max's production facilities in California and should be shipped back out on Friday.
Going from 66 to 65 cogs

Cheers !

I had to pay half unit cost of £441.05 plus tax & half labour at 6500 miles in warranty. MMC seem to treat people differently some getting replacement at no cost. Planenut got the part but not labour.

For me the Fabian one is the best. Why?

It’s made with the highest grade of steel available. It has the same ratio as standard (66theet). It has color anodized flanges on both sides. The whole pulley has a final surface finish for even more strength. The last design is even lighter and better.

At first, it was supposed to be a one off for my own use only. When we saw the outstanding result reached, Fabian decided to make it available.

After 6,000 miles on the Super Max sprocket overlay I finally had to change out the rear tire as it was worn out. The sprocket, after a light H20 cleaning looks as good as it did out of the mailing box. No wear no nothing. It is still quiet and the belt shows no signs of wear.

Only downside was that my dealer, who fitted it, used a LOT of Loctite and the five bolts holding the sprocket were a royal pain to remove. I let the tire people remove the spindle as it was obvious to me that someone used an impact wrench to get it on and it would take one to get it off.

Note to self: One person can REMOVE the rear wheel. Two will be required to INSTALL it. I'm drafting someone tomorrow to help put it back on. It won't take that much time but two arms are simply not enough. Three would be better but four are perfect!
