    Would it be possible to go one tooth up on the front sprocket to lower the rpm's in 5th gear? Also, would the belt have to be changed?

    I think you can go to a 1200 sprocket (29T) and I think the belt go from a 136T to a 137T for the 1200 also, I would give your dealer a call and he can check the part books for sure.

    Here's the spec's for the 09 XL'S

    And add perhaps get a bit better fuel mileage...but also may not be noticeable either.
