I wouldn't mind it for a reference, but pics would be a lot nicer. I have issues viewing the photobucket links on old threads, so I don't have a whole lot of help in that department on most threads

Got the drive delivered. Awaiting a bike jack from HF. I have a catering gig on Wed, so will attempt the mod on Thurs.

I remember reading something about a cap, I think for the axle nut. M16 something or other comes to mind, but the search engine here doesn't work for small entires, or much of anything else for that matter. :rolleyes:

Hey Fellas I am also about to install my DJ drive. I have one questions about the wheel spacer. Some post say just shave 2mm off the factory C50 spacer , then others say make it to a final length of 2.815 or 2 7/8 , so which is it. If a shave 2mm off that leaves me with 2.876 as the original spacer is 2.955, so to get to 2.815 . any input would be great

Let me know how it goes and how it rides after. I just finished bobbing out my Volusia so the DJ drive is definitely next

I've always gone with 2.875 on the drives I've installed. Never had an issue.
