    Hey all. I have a 2003 Vegas I picked up.. Love the bike, engines plenty strong. Problem is, highways in my area of Texas are 75mph, and the 5spd seems to be much more happy at 65( my ride to work is 44 miles each way on one such highway)...so I was hoping to find a 100ci with the 6spd to swap in. I know there would be some wiring to work through, but besides that, does anyone know if it would fit, or has been done before?

    Your bike will run all day @80 without breaking a sweat.

    I'll often find myself running my Vegas @75mph in 5th for miles.

    I have a 2003 Vegas. I bought it with the 92 ci motor. I had the factory 100 ci big bore kit installed. (This was years ago. I don’t know if that kit is still available. Maybe it’s a 106 kit now?) I found the difference in power to be noticeable, with no decrease in mpg. I also find that the bike likes to run a 80 mph, even before I had the big bore kit installed, so I don’t understand your 65mph comment at all.

    You will be much better off simply getting a big bore kit installed and maybe getting an overdrive pulley, as opposed to finding and installing a different motor.

    Find and ride curvy back roads that 60mph feels like your running 80 mph, sometimes the simplest answers the best one, the overdrive pulley’s your easiest option & a taller rear tire will help. ( I’m brain farting at the moment so if a smaller rear tire is needed please correct me)

    I really think he is talking about noise, vibration, etc. He wants to reduce the rpms and make all the gears taller. This will make it sound and feel less aggressive for that 40 minute ride. Conquest has the below, I am also thinking of ordering it for a garage queen. If you knock 300 rpms off the top gear you calm it down at higher speeds. The bike has more than enough torque to get out of the hole with the overdrive installed.

    I did the same thing with my Triumphs on the primary gear by adding a few teeth. Its like getting a sixth gear without a lot of mechanical changes.

    @agnews If I got this wrong I apologize. I think @11ZNL got it right about what he wants to do.

    The Conquest Customs overdrive pulley may not be in stock anymore. Last Summer they told me that I got the last one they had in stock and had no plans to order another production run. They don’t make them there, they have a machine shop make them for them.

    Anyone interested in one from them should call and see if they have ordered up another batch. If they haven’t, well, enough people will have to call them and order one. That way they’ll order another batch.

    I called before I posted. I am few months out so will call later, the OP should call now if he wants this as a solution. A ton cheaper than a motor swap.

    OK, they have them back in stock. Good to know.
