, I am new to this site. I just bought an 06' C50T and my fiance and I love it. I have previous experience with an 82' Kawasaki 750 and a 98' Honda Valkyrie (fathers).

I absolutely love everything about this bike except one thing, the highway cruising RPM's. I commute 124 miles a day and love using the bike for the fun factor and fuel mileage. Most of my commute is between 60-75MPH, which is in the 3700-4700 RPM range.

I have been considering different methods to lower cruising RPM's, specifically a taller rear tire/rim or different rear drive gears.

My specific requirements are a happy medium at highway speeds. Here are my opinions on what I may need to do this:

1)optimum efficiency is typically at max torque RPM, which in this case is 3500 RPM according to Suzuki.
2)I would like to run 65MPH (average of different cruising speeds/most highway speed limits) at 3500 RPM.

In order to accomplish this, I would need:

A)a 30" tire, compared to 26" stock tire. This is a 4" difference, which is unlikely to fit under the stock rear fender.

B)Final drive reduction of 3.00, rather than the stock 3.503.

Now my question's to all of you is this: Are you familiar with any company that manufactures different rear differential gears? Also, is there a different Suzuki (or other brand) gear that may fit the c50's rear diff housing that is closer to a 3:1 ratio.

If there is not a gear already manufactured, I may be in contact with a local high-performance manufacturing facility to see if they can manufacture a 3:1 rear drive gear.

Thanks




are there any chances and means to go this way with a VX 800
