Zipper's Performance Representative
Here at Zipper's, we are all about Sportsters®.
We cut our teeth and built our reputation racing Sportsters®! Between 1985 and 1995, Zipper's drag racing yielded 5 National Drag Racing Championships and set over 60 National and World Records. Building for both power and reliability, this strategy was central to the legendary record of wins. Today, Zipper's Performance Products uses the performance knowledge gained by racing to create street-to-strip performance strategies for riders of all kinds.

Chain Conversion Kits for Sportster® Models
We've taken the hassle of converting your late model belt driven Sportster® to chain drive, whether for greater durability, altered final drive ratio, clearance for a wider tire, cool old school looks, or all of the above! Front sprockets are steel, rear are made from extremely tough hardened 7075-T6 aircraft quality aluminum. Choose between high-wearing RK Pro O-Ring chain or RK's brutally strong, non-o-ring DR (Drag Race) chain.
