Cool start ... Am a yamaha vmax expert and I have done 300 tire on a shaft drive.

I was working on triking a vmax but had to stop for a while....

Question : are you gonna shorten the shafts ? Did you consider the differential rotation because I think it turns the opposite direction of the vstar hence you may need to flip the whole differential assembly.

Good luck and I can't wait to see it running

AN Excellent start, Keep the pictures coming.

How close of a match is the S10 Gear Ratio to the Vstar?

I guess from the pictures that you are not shortening Rearend?

Keep up the good work.

I need to get back to work on mine and build the body.
