Video-In this completely free video we show you how to access your final belt drive by completely removing your inner and outer primary drive housings on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. We then show you how to replace your final belt drive. We had a Dyna, Touring and Softail on hand to show you the slight differences.
It doesn't really matter the year and make of your Harley as this process is pretty standard. We can say that this video covers 2000 and newer Harley's and likely earlier models.

Was wondering why the shifter wasn’t put back in.
Ryan Urlacher says
It was moved forward with a forward control kit.
Neil Winter says
My 1991 soft tail Springer manual shows removing the rear shocks and much more in order to replace the rear belt drive . Can I merely remove the rear wheel as you showed in your video. I understand my bike is much older than the one you showed.
Ryan Urlacher says
Haven’t worked on that particular year. So sorry, I’m not sure. I’d hate to steer you in the wrong direction.
