Wanted to buy - taller final drive
« on: November 10, 2021, 04:06:43 AM »
Taller final drive than the stock R65 wanted for the 860 upgrade - if anyone's got one to sell or know of parts please let me know.

Cheers,
TR

I added a taller /6 rear drive to my otherwise stock '82 model.
It made a big difference in the bike's higher speed highway capabilities, without hurting acceleration.
Might want to check with the seller lamontsanfurd on Ebay, he's been parting out Airheads and Guzzis for years.
He's who I bought my taller drive from, and I've seen him selling others. Excellent prices too.
