    For Vmax fitment there are only 3.33 (Venture and Euro Vmax) and 3.66 (US Spec Vmax). The Royal Stars also used 3.33's. There are other ratios Yamaha has for their other models but they will not work on the gen 1's. The Gen 2 has a 2.90 I think is the right ratio.

    Sorry to be a pedant but it is final drive; a differential is a completely different beast.

    That, I think, is because the term is still and frequently incorrectly used so the search bots will pick this up. Whist clever at what they do they are still stupid in filtering out incorrect information.

    A differential is used to drive two wheels - a definition is:-
    functioning or proceeding differently or at a different rate i.e. one wheel is able to rotate at a different rate to the other which is required when cornering.
