Yep! I love the way mine runs in the lower gears too and that PITA stumble on take off went away. That alone is worth doing the mod. It was 10 times worse taking off 2-up without it and could get you in a bind depending on the condition of your takeoff. Such as a steep up hill with a sharp turn right or left :eek1 I also have a switch on mine and works well. You can tell with the switch in the upper gears holding a constant speed and turn the mod off the engine picks up about a 100 or so RPM's. At least mine does. Has anyone felt this too?
