Better? I thought the "Motors, Transmissions & Drives" forum would be the tip off to a C90 mod thread, but hey, I'm all for a little better clarity.

Sorry Viper--some of us aren't smart enough to look at that. I only look at thread names. I understand where you were headed now that I PULL MY HEAD OUT!!!!!!

Great overview Viper! I've had a VS1400 drive sitting in my garage for nearly two years and still can't decide if I want to get it on since I don't do much slab riding.

midnight, do it! i did it last weekend and am not looking back. It seemed a bit of a daunting and scary task at first, but it's quite easy. just make sure you drill the holes to 9/16" and make sure the bike is in gear when trying to put in the drive shaft

The Question...

is a simple one. What years work?

Perhaps my old eyes have overlooked the obvious answer, but it seems to me that these various drives - C90, VL1500 and VS1400 - that are mentioned have no model years attached.


One must presume that there were no changes in the final drives for all years that these models were produced. Is this true?


As an example - right now on Ebay are two VS1400 final drive units. One from a 1992 model and one from a "
1986 THROUOGH 2009 SUZUKI VS1400 INTRUDER".

One is reasonably priced and one is OUTRAGEOUSLY priced!

Regardless of price - will this unit (with modifications) fit my 2009 C50SE?

What say ye DJ Drive technical geeks of wisdom?

No year limit has ever been posted.
One thing about Zuki Cruisers ........they don't hardly change and when they do it isn't by much.
One reason some parts from an '04 can fit an '07

Just hafta have to the mod you need for the drive you have.
There are at least 3 methods now depending on whether you want your old OEM drive shaft back
the original DJ way, the use your OEM ( for the 1400's) shaft, the modified donor shaft way.
Then you hafta decide if you are going to use the fake swing arm, 'cause you will hafta work on the case if ya do.

I don't know if anyone has looked into it far enough to give a difinitive answer as to what specific years definatly will work and what years definatly will not work. My advice would be to bump the part number of the drive you are thinking of using against the part number of a drive that you know will work. If they match up you have a winner. For instance I know any C90 drive will work. I know any VL1500 drive will work. I know any VS1400 drive will work. Bump your part numbers up against any of those drives and look for a match. I know too there is a thread out there of a fella using a drive off a GV1400, the mod is alittle different and the axle does not protrude far enough to get a cotter pin inserted, but he is running it with a nut and locktite.

So unless you can buy one here that has already been modded, you may have to do alittle research on your as many of us have. I will gladly share what I know, I have no secrets (about drives anyway) but when it gets down to modle year, I haven't looked that far into it.

What year and modle are you looking at on e-bay? Shoot me a PM if need be.
