Is there a way to change the final drive to a higher gear so I can stop looking for another gear.

You could have one made. It's a short stroke engine....it needs the rpm to make it's power....it's and why you can pass Harleys on the highway. Put on pods and exhaust and you'll stop trying to shift........you'll get used to it like the rest of us

Thanks for the info.  I did not know the 1100 are short stroke.  This is the first time I heard this.  Have not seen any info about that.

Thanks again.

Short stroke higher RPM motor, they get a little buzzy at 70 mph & up but they'll run 80 mph all day long with throttle to spare and go 200,000 miles and up without engine work, a friends HD twin cam had to have the heads done and valves & seats replaced at 27,000... (but it isn't at all buzzy, it's more Bu$$$$$$$ie... LOL)

What do you call a little buzzy.  I went for a 20 min ride and reached up to 75mph and my hand got a little numb.  Is that too much buzz?  I have been Googling and I saw a couple on places that said I should try carb tuning to kill some of the buzz.  What is your take on this?

I always synced my carbs when she would get a bit buzzy.

If the vibration gets high at 75 it may need the carbs synced. Not hard to do and is in the KB.

I will be sync carbs this week. I'm looking forward to ride with less vibration.

I was referring to the vibration of a motor running at higher RPM's,     if your hands are getting numb, then you may want to re-sync, as said above.
