To my knowledge you will need a kde motor mount to change pinions. I'd recommend the new 550X Dominator motor of you don't want to go through all of that.

Why not try the Scorpion 4025-890, this will give you just over 100 rpm more head speed and still bolt in without any modes. Plus they are in stock at your go to shop!

It looks like KDE only has the complete motor mount kits left for the older 450s and 700-800 class. I talked to them some time back and most of these type items they where not doing any more runs on. So when they are gone they are gone. I would think it should not be to hard to find a used one in the classifieds. Place a wanted add and see what comes up.
Good luck.

There was no kit made for 550L at KDE ever. So you wont find anything at classifileds. sorry

I asked KDE bout this, this was the answer:

"
Thanks for reaching out and unfortunately, we never produced this version, as the market was not enough to justify the costs in production.

Customers have been taking the AT600P-UMM design, and then using the AT700E-UMM-V2 rails, in order to adopt this to the ALIGN 550L design. It does work, just takes some tweaking and effort for the install, so it’s not a simple drop-in installation.

AT600P-UMM: https://www.kdedirect.com/collection...cts/at600p-umm
AT700E-UMMRK-V2: https://www.kdedirect.com/collection...t700e-ummrk-v2

Thanks,
Patrick Koegler
Owner, KDE Direct

I'd look into the new 730mx 960kv version. You wouldn't have to change your pinion either. If you already have the scorpion though then nevermind.
