Yep- Perfect for the mod.. You can just mod your C50 driveshaft. There are drawings in the drives section on sticky that will guide you. You will need a new grease seal for the drive, and a burr or file to make the holes elongated.. easy to do..
Oh and Honda Moly 60 paste for the splines.
Cheers

It ain't getting what you want..It's wanting what u got!

I finally installed my dj drive yesterday. You can ally tell a difference. I mean when I'm at 85 and still have plenty of throttle, that's something to boast about. During the install I gave up trying to file the holes and just drilled them. Does anyone sell the bushings needed to reinstall the c50 drive?

I first removed the clearcoat that was on it, had some marks I wanted to remove. Then, I used a scotch brute pad with metal polish and rubbed, rubbed, rubbed. Then I put a sewn cotton buffing wheels on my pneumatic die grinder and used jewelers metal polish for aluminum. It took some time but I got the finish I wanted. Yes, it looks like chrome.

Viper, I don't know if clearcoat will stick or not. It is smooth. But there is a clearcoat on them originally.

Looks good doesn't it?

Looks good, yes.

A little Never Dull from time to time will keep it looking that good.
