Just sending up a flare


Just running this up the flagpole to see if somebody salutes, 81 R100 with 100k plus miles has alot of drive line lash. I suspect I am need of a final drive. Since the Bob's cost of back to perfect is about $600, I would like to explore the used/salvaged market.

I have a drum brake 32/11 final drive. I have found a pretty nice 32/10 for under $200, and was wondering will I really lose anything in the ratio change?

I will be at the Virginia British Motorcycle Club, show and swap meet in Manassas this Sunday in the hopes of spotting a serviceable final drive. Should I remain steadfast for a 32/11 or not be afraid to branch out?

Thanks, I'm sorry to go a little off topic, but you boys seem to be knowledgable and local, sort of.
