SCPerformance has the pulleys custom made to order by another company. I'll call them this morning and see how my order is coming, so you might not be so gun-shy. I read them the riot act awhile ago, so they should be better, especially with the Bonneville Club members. What size is your stock pulley? Measure to the belt surface, not the rims. I think yours is bigger than mine to begin with. I'd only go down one step from stock if I were you....for KR and heat prevention. I may go smaller later, but not right now.
I'm also making my own puller.....just to be safe. The steel is cut, I just need to weld, drill, and tap. If your pulley is a 2.5 like mine (2.75 to the rim), I can ship you my puller after I install my pulley. I'll give you the overall total OD that it will handle after I get it done.
I wouldn't be afraid to deal with Pulley Boys, just make sure they don't undersize you too much, and understand the application.
