Sprocket

Right I do have a Drifter 800. What difference did the change make for you. Higher top end or what? Did the gas milage change? Or did nothing happen?

i did it to cure the buzzzzzzz at 80mph :lol:

it dropped rpm's a good bit and got the engine in a more relaxed
state at that speed-i highly suggest it if your hiway riding alot on the 800b
gas mileage-did'nt notice any improvment-i never keep up with mpg's :lol:
