DJ Drive by Motiv

It's been over a month and a few hundred miles since I installed a DJ Drive supplied by Motiv on my '06 C50. The drive has been a dream. The gears are more useful, less shifting required, 5th gear rarely needed when driving around town. Riding at higher speeds is far more comfortable than before. I don't ride on the highways so I seldom exceed 70 MPH. This drive has also gotten lots of 2-up riding. A little adjustment on throttle and clutch use is needed with the new rear end ratio but very easy to adjust as a rider even for a noob as myself.

The drive itself was excellent. It was shipped promptly and well packaged. Motiv provided everything needed to install except the tools. Moly grease, spacer, etc. was included as well as installation tips. Any questions about the drive or installation was met with a prompt response from Motiv himself.

Overall an amazing upgrade with great support. I definitely recommend Motiv's drives.

Best upgrade you'll make. They folks here are the best you'll find.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I have seen a couple of posts that mention that a hole (I believe it is for the bolt/shaft that holds the wheel in place) for the drive shaft needs to be elongated. If that is the case, I am not comfortable doing that to my bike and wouldn't do it. Can someone shed some light on this? Thanks.

Not the axle, but the drive shaft housing tube; three bolt holes need to be either enlarged a bit, or elongated. Enlarged is easy, just use a drill bit centered. Elongated is best if you want to revert back to stock drive.

As shown in the picture, it's as if you had 9/16 bolt and needed to use 5/8th. Easy to do with a rat tail file, Dremel, etc.

As stated already, one of the best mods you can do to your bike, IMHO.
I also bought one from Motiv, included everything I needed.
The talked about holes took less then 10 minutes to elongate.
My 2014 had about 4000 on it at the time, 50,000+ now.
Opens up a whole new riding experience for long slab runs, would never go back!
