From what I read, the 900 engine is very happy at the rpm it runs in 5th at about 70mph, problem is most riders don't think it has a "natural" feel at those speeds. The Scootworks front pulley is the easy solution. When they get the rear pulley out, I'm sure that will work also. I find that after changing out the front pulley, I ride around town in 4th most of the time. On the highway at 70 the rpms are about 3500 to 3600. As a comparison the Road King runs about 3200 at 70 mph. For me spending $180 on the pulley, was much better than spending $20K or so to get that 6 th gear.:wink:i have a 2007 vn900 classic on the road i always shift to the invisible sixed gear ! does anyone else do that ?
Here you go, you will love it!!!Scootworks - Belt Drive Conversions for Kawasaki Motorcycleswhat about them pulleys does anyone have a web-site for them so i can look at them and possibly buy them?who makes them?
I think it was Yamaha back 12 years ago or so. Can't remember exactly. The reviews of the HD 6th gear all say about the same thing, useless under 75 mph. If that is true, there aren't too many places it would come in handy - legally that is. I don't know about the Victory.I wonder who willbe the first metric company to release a 6th gear?
