So I went for a long ride yesterday and instill find it uncomfortable at speed. I've tried to order a 41t sprocket before and they sent me the wrong one. So, I was hoping one of you might have a supplier and part number. It a 2006. My hands kept going numb from the vibration at 55-65. Also, I put a mustang seat on it and found it cuts into my lower back after awhile. Still sore from that. Any ideas would be appreciated. I don't think they make a backrest for this seat.
I just recently threw out the package it came in, but I can call the dealer tomorrow and ask for the part number that was sold to me. they keep track of all my sales. see if you can go to a couple sites and get a part number, make sure they match.
I'm told you can just shorten it if its in good shape n the sprocket is mainly to lower rpm's at highway speeds nor some reason I don't understand they only put a 4 speed tranny on the VLX. So, when you get above 55 it's wound up pretty good and that causes a lot of vibration in the bike...especially the bars.
It streched the gearing out a noticable bit as well, very nice. I wont even shift to 4th now till I hit 45 to 50 on the VLX.
I did consider a 40, but not so sure about that.
JT or SUN also make a 17 front, which brings it to a little better than 3 down on the rear, but I here its tight clearance, and you wont have to shorten the chain.
