While waiting for my motorcycle parts, in between a soffet R&R, adjusting my bicycle and mowing 1 1/2 a. today, I decided to put my new Shinko rear tire on. Check splines, etc.
The last 4 motorcycles I have owned were shaft drive. The output and final drive on the VN are large. I would guess they could take 3x 60hp. Had to be designed for parts compatibility with other bikes. So I checked some parts numbers.
I tried the search, nothing came up. Has anybody tried to adapt say a 1500 final drive to a VN? Or other Kawasaki final drives?
As I have walked around machinist's and machine shop almost all my life, I am tempted to get involved on a on/off basis. I have a full set of machinist tools.
What size rear tire, what rpm's at 70mph and what is the approximate distance between the swing arm axle mounting on a 1500?
Has this been attempted before? If so, what was the thread about so it can be searched?
