BILLET OUTBOARD BEARING SUPPORT SYSTEMS

outboard bearing support systems are sold as part of all 5" INTIMIDATOR SERIES primary belt drives. They are also offered as optional accessories for the 3" and 4" INTIMIDATOR belt drives and can be retrofitted to all INTIMIDATOR belt drives ever made. Over 30 different support plates ave available in both Softail-style and FXR/FLT - style platforms, in addition to several belt cover options. Specialized Outboard Bearing supports for and XCD [eXtended Center Distance] are specified below .

The main link in outboard bearing support systems are the massive bearings. Measuring 3-inches in diameter, these bearings can take the load, the torque and the abuse of the highest- horsepower bikes. Housed in heavy CNC-sculpted billet aluminum carriers the big bearings provide the rock-solid support for primary belt drives.

Simple installation and ease of servicing were two of the key features designed into the Outboard Bearing Support System. Installation is literally as simple as removing the front pulley’s guide plate and replacing it with the bearing carrier. Once both bearing carriers are installed, the center support plate slips in place completing the installation. For future servicing, the outboard bearing support system can be removed in whole or part in a manner of minutes. As with all belt drives, every component of the outboard bearing support system is available individually for servicing and rebuild.

With a outboard bearing support system, the pulleys are locked in place with no movement possible. Because all motorcycle models use specific center distances between the engine’s sprocket shaft and the transmission’s mainshaft, every motor plate is machined to these specific dimensions. By adding outer bearing carriers to each pulley that are tied together with a support plate that has the exact same center distance as the motor plate, the pulleys are now locked in place and can NEVER MOVE.

Other manufacturers of outer bearing supports actually bolt their support plate to the motor plate, assuming that this adds further strength. In truth, this is not the case. Once the pulleys are secured with the outer support plate, they can never move. It is crucial to ensure that the center distance on the support plate matches the motor plate, and state-of-the-art CNC machining centers are accuate to within .0002”. No other belt drive manufacturer can match the precision, quality and design innovation of and no other outboard bearing support works better and simpler.
