Default Re: Will a 24 tooth work?

I have ran a 25T. It is too much for the motor to pull. These egines can only do so much. You wouldn't think that just a couple teeth would make so much of a difference.

I currently run a 28T. I'm 5'9" 205lbs. and I cruise at about 35MPH on my bike. It has the usual updates... plug, wire and air filter. I don't have any hills to contend with and I'm a clutch rider (I don't pedal to take off....)

The 35MPH is on my Worksman, my stretch is much heavier (same 28T) and although it is not broke in, I'm positive it won't do 35.

So.... try the 24. Let us know how it works (or not) for you.

For the "Purist" out there. These are not GPS clocked speeds... just my trusty digital speedo.
