rear end swap. What do you mean by rear end? Hub? gear? Can some one give me the
part number and years that work best?
Take a look in the photo section under VT1100. Theres a photo of the rear end,
plus tach readings at various speeds with this installed. Most of us who have
done this have found the assembly on Ebay orother parts sites, mine was $85 but
others got them for less. It appears from looking at VT1100 parts diagrams that
the years 1987 to 1992 will work. Guess you could buy either the entire drive
new or just the gears and put them in, but you are talking a LOT more money to
do that. Good luck! Dave Hiett
