All hail Dan Hillis..............the originator of the DJ drive. He did a lot of pre-production work on figuring this one out.

Thanks for the responses! That really cleared that up for me. Not sure if I want to tackle that though. I'm pretty handy but don't want to do any permanent damage to my bike or at the least not be able to put the original back on if needed.

You can just make a couple of sleeves and bore the holes to 9/16" vice elongate them. It's what Dan Hillis originally did. When the OEM drive goes back in you use the sleeves and reinstall the bolts. Easy-peasy..........

I personally have never thought the elongating was a good idea.

This is undoubtedly the next thing I am going to do to mine after I get the carb done. This bike has a really low ratio, I am in 4th at 35-40 mph.

And yes this site is great!

Something tells me you have a lathe? Or are you talking about finding a piece of pipe with correct OD/ID to make sleeves from? Just curious.
