I know some have you have changed the shaft etc on your 800's to lower the rpm etc at cruising speed, can the same be done for my VX800? I have just been browsing ebay and thought would the final drive from a GSX1100G fit my VX? Fit a front wheel with twin discs and rear wheel as well with all the bits!!

I've no idea Andrew, you'd need both bikes to compare the parts you'd be interchanging?, is the vx final drive much different to the vs1400 drive? the vx looks similar to the vl800 drive.

hi,thanks simbo vx800s are fairly thin on the ground here in oz i found a vx rear drive they want $325au but there are plenty of vl's being wrecked.looking up spare parts numbers the different numbers are the case and bearing stopper.the gears bearings seals etc are the same.i suspect the three studs where it bolts to the swing arm may have different spacing.there is a thread on this forum about fitting a vs1400 rear to get higher gearing and he had to alter the swing arm holes.the one on ebay is half the price thanks very much for your input

If I'm understanding you correctly, are you asking if fitting a VS700/800 final drive will lower your revs ?  Sure someone (Dave or Sim) will correct me, but you need to be fitting the VS1400 diff unit (mated with the drive shaft from an 800) to reduce the revs.  I can't see that fitting the diff from a different model 800 would have an appreciable effect on the gearing.  You need to mill the 800 shaft down slightly, as the 1400 shaft is not long enough - if you have a look at the photographs of page one of Dave's "How To" thread, you'll see the difference in the lengths.

Dave the unfortunate reply to the question is that the  VS700 or 800 is totally different from the VL range as you & I have & the VS1400 diff assembly will not fit the VS7/800 models as sayhello has been informed before on the site before.

There's a few diffs on ebay at the moment & a few 800 diffs complete with the shaft - no 800 shafts only though

How To  - however - this is only applicable to the VL models.  It may be better for you ask someone in a VX forum as they'll have had more experience with VX's.  Sorry I can't be of any more assistance than that
