If you have read any of my posts, you have seen that I too would like a TALLER 5th gear..
Starnge this comes up as I am looking at ether a C90 or a Vulcan 1600.
I wish I could keep the C50 but the high revs on the Highway drives me crazzy. There is just no reason for it.
I had a YZF600R inline 4 - I changed the sprokets to reduce the RPM by 500 on the highway - wow what a diffrence, dropped below the buzz RPM it was great.
I to was thinking 3500 rpm at 60 - 65 was the sweet spot.
Not sure if you know about this link but it my help out with the math
If some mfg would make a Ring and Pinion I would pay allot for it.
Its a great looking bike and I get so many people saying how sweet it looks.
And to top it all off, im going to take a BIG hit trading this thing in.
I too would rather do a down shift to make a quick pass or climb a steep hill than listen to that motor screem on the highway.
I also run the highway every day to and from work. And everyday I hit the shifter thinking im in 4th, but no luck its 5th and its BUZZY....
HOW CAN I HELP
