i installed the dj drive that i bought from Cory this weekend....every thing went rather well with the exception of oblonging the three mounting holes ...that was not fun...but i finally got it and had just a little trouble getting the u-joint to stand up so i could stab the shaft...but i finally got that done as well...i was really a breeze just swapping out one drive for the other...i did lube the shaft gears on both ends and the gear mounting for the wheel....i tried it out and gave it a 200 mile break-in run...no problems at all....i realized a 450 rpm drop in 5th gear and each 5mph only adds about 225 rpm....60mph and i am taching 3000 rpm....1st gear feels pretty normal to me...i don't have to slip the clutch any more than i did before....overall i am very very pleased with the gear swap...the bike has that great V-Twin thump that i have on my Vulcan and my Harley....i will update later when i get the improved miles per gallon ....live to ride/ride to live!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw little to no change in MPG when I installed my DJ Drive. It stayed a consistent average of 47mpg.... Also, the speedo is about 10% optimistic about your indicated speed. 60 indicated is really 55-56 mph.
