I learned that 5th gear on the VN900C doesn't feel too bad after you realize you were riding in 4th going 60-65mph thinking - boy... today its buzzing a lot... :rolleyes: switch to 5th and its feels quite nice all of a sudden! (still want to get an overdrive pulley though). That and I'm averaging 53-55 mpg... WOOT!

If you like the RPMs the way they are why get the pulley? Its not really going to save you anything in gas. It will make your gas calculations seem like your milage drops way off. It will slow your speedo readings and Odometer readings.

I have the pulley and I really like the RPM difference I got from it. Its not a lot but just enough for me.

I actually have an overdrive light on my dash when I shift into 6th gear. It's a good thing, since I wouldn't mind having a 7th.

I guess, no matter how many gears you have, you always want another... ;)
