Final Gearing
« on: August 20, 2016, 02:21:17 PM »
With a normal chain drive, the sprockets can be changed to make adjustments to the final drive ratio. With our shaft drives, obviously there are limitations. Is a change in ratio feasible or possible?

You can swap to a VT500 Shadow rear end for a higher gear ratio.

Actually, I was looking to go the other way.

Don't think that can be done.

A shorter profile tire might help some.
