Regearing a K1200 RS for sidecar duty

I have a 2002 K1200RS with a Hannigan sidecar. The Rig with me and my passenger ( a 40 lb. dog ) and everything I normally leave with the rig weighs in at over 1300 lbs. The K pulls this without any problem once moving, but getting started on a steep grade or while parked on soft ground can be a bit of a problem without abusing the clutch. Does anyone know if a final drive from an oilhead will work on the K1200? Stock rear drive is 33/12 Or 2.75/1. I would like to try a 33/11 giving me a 3.00/1 ratio. I don't believe anything other than 33/12 was ever offered for the K1200 so a final drive from an oilhead would be my only option. Thanks Dan
