Thanks!
You can't go wrong if you take it from the large end.

Drive assembly replacement.

Does anybody in the Fredericksburg VA area know of anyone that has made this mod, and that would be willing do it again on my bike?

I think they made VS1400s from 1996 to 2002, They all have the same part number for the final drive assembly.

1987-2003 VS1400 all share the same part number for the final drive. The parts breakdown shows 87-95 and then 86-03 but the final drive is the same for both groups. The part number is 27300-38845.

Final Drive Mod

I have an 03 Volusia. For clarification, what are my options. There is a guy locally that used a Hamlings drive. I see the C-90 and the VS1400 and this Hamling. Oh and the "DJ" drive. I'm trying to get a handle on where I can get the parts and what I should expect to have in it by the time I'm thru.

The hamling, and dj drive are the entities that modify the drives...
As I understand the c90 drives are realy hard to come by lately... That is why the 1400 is used now... there is a how to on this in a sticky at the top of motors transmissions and drives all about this.....

I have a question?

Has any failures been reported due to the shaft splines wearing/breaking? The reason why I am asking is since there is machining being done to the shaft there is going to be some stressed introduced to it from that process. It would seem wise to temper the shaft to reduce the stresses added from the maching process.

None on drives made by Dan Hills (DJ)
But he doesn't machine the spline.
He cuts and shortens and re-welds and trues up the drive better than original.

None so far reported w/ the 1400 drives

Also I believe the 1400 drives someone said gives only a 10% change as to the C90's 14%.

The only failures reported have been with unmodified oem driveshafts. The two fellas mentioned here know what they're do'n. Hillis described his process once and it sounded like some sort of heat treating is done.

YZ, who is a machinest by trade, uses a process to buildup up the shoulder area that he turns back, a heating/tempering process as well.
