Default 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

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.
