    Default Idler pulley

    Anyone selling a Pipeapple Racing or FFE Idler Pulley? Thinking of ordering one from the US but thought I'd see if anyone is offloading one.

    Cheers

    if you want something local, you could always go an xtreme rotories idler:

    I've got the full pulley kit and have had no issues and fitment was good.

    I searched the online shop.

    Looks like you can't buy the idler and belt separately.

    If you give them a call they may be able to sell you one, or if you contact Rohan at xterme rotories and tell him what you need he may be able to make up a pulley for you. He made my set in a day for me, good bloke to deal with.

    Rohan has closed up shop. Hence the different shop with a similar name.

    you can still contact him on thursdays though and put in a request for parts and he may make them for you if hes not too busy.

    Last time I was there he was making up some nice fittings for where the oil filter goes so you can bung in some sensors into it.

    Rohan is a very valuable part of the Rotary community, engineering many top products for everyone serious about the craft, would be a shame to see him retire. I am sure he will keep doing his magic for the serious customers.

    Or anyone else?

    Underdrive on the water pump might be better. Noticed a while back there were complaints of bearing failures on the Pineapples over at the club. Seems the Xtreme kit has gone by the wayside since this post.

    Have you ever heard anything bad about any of their products?

    Didn't think so. Why would their idler pulley be any different?

    I had a pineapple one, fitted good and no problems. Had FFE billet fuel rails and they were top quality stuff also. I'm sure either will work well ,
    Have fun,
