Maybe 2.92 to one according too second article, FD ratios are often a result road noise tests at cruising speed not engine efficiency, the drive Drone sent back is back on Fleabay for $300 its not a abs one or you should grab it at that price Claude but you's have to remove you ABS pump at the same time.In spite of Drones protest that's a cheap 6% change over the whole transmission.DB

Davebig is right--the non-ABS 3.0 FD I bought is back on eBay. Seller is free2ridemybike. That FD is in nice condition if anybody is interested.

What's in the box?

Kirby, what's in the box? What did the man in the brown truck bring us?



Boxertwin and Davebig--no fair guessing. Let the others take a crack first.

Custom-built shocks would be nice and somewhere on my list, but my Ohlins have not yet exploded. Gonna keep 'em for a few more miles.

I know !!!!!!!!

You'll like the change, it'll be allot easier on associated bits and the next time you run off the road things will be less stressful.
You know Kirby is very friendly looking fellow and he probably is, I like giants to look a bit threatening, overbearing the Oberfuher of the household possibly SS nothing sharper than a big German in a sharp black outfit.Where did that welcome mat come from ? DB

Howdy DRONE,

OK, I think "davebig" gave a good clue, its a final drive with a lower gear ratio, which one did you get?

Howdy davebig,

Why be sad, be happy installing the 3.36:1 final drive in my hacked GS was one of the BEST things I have ever done to the rig.

Davebig chastised me a few months back for turning my nose up at a 33/11 with 22,000 miles for $375. But I didn't want to spend the money just to bump up from a 2.82 to a 3.0. I think he musta felt bad about that because he PM'ed me a couple of weeks ago and put me onto a 34/11 for $315 with only 18,000 miles.

So this 3.09 arrived today from a fellow inmate in Tennessee. Just spinning it in my hands, it feels smooth as silk with no play at all. I think I got a good one!! Not as low as Cob's 3.36 (37/11) but those things just don't show up too often on the used market.

Thanks, DB!! I owe you one!!

Wait till you get it installed before thanking me but I think you'll enjoy it with our adv transmissions 1st and 6th are lower than the standard 1150gs and I think a 3.36 would be too low for the occasional interstate flight, I live out next too the great prairie and can never decide how to cross the Dakota's.DB
