1400 DJ Drive Mod on C50T??

Hello all. I purchased an 07 C50T as my first bike. I have been seeing people talk about the DJ Drive mod. Can someone please explain to me what it is? I am reading nothing but good about it, but dont understand exactly what it is. Thank you.

The Mod is grafting a VS1400 or C90 drive on an M50 or C50 These drives are a taller gear allowing you to spin at lower RPM's at each gear for the same speeds.
it gives the bike almost like an extra 6th gear or overdrive- Makes a huge difference..See a full explanation in the mods section under DJ drive explained..
Cheers

It ain't getting what you want..It's wanting what u got!

Thanks guys. I can see the fist thing I need to do is try to find one. Then it seems like getting in touch with DJ Hillis, if thats still possible, is the thing to do.

Aric balster in Sturgis also does this mod. Just had him do one for me - great to work with as well.
