M50 and C50 are the same bike with different fenders. I did it on my C50. It helps to reduce RPM at speed, but it robs it bike to power. I could it ride to long grades in 5th gear.

A power commander, intake and performance pipes will only give you about 4 additional HP. So between the drive and the mods, you're going to dump around $2000 into the bike and it still isn't going to perform well on the interstates.

DynaJet Stage 1 carb kit, C90 rear, smooth sailing. No real power loss in the lower end and a good reduction in rpms at 70-75mph. Did it myself $0 labor, $95 C90 rear, $60 stage 1.
