XR 1200 dynamic belt tensioner

XR 1200 dynamic belt tensioner

Free Spirits’ latest race derived piece for the Harley XR 1200 is a dynamic final drive belt tensioner.

While the stock tensioner is designed to keep the belt under tension, however, when the suspension is completely unloaded the tension is increased to a level where it can potentially damage the belt. In order to rectify this problem, the Free Spirits dynamic tensioner is spring loaded and designed to maintain a tension of 10.5kg (depending on model) regardless of swingarm position. This is said to lead to lengthened belt and bearing life.
