Default Re: Sprocket Sizes

I have a 44t and weigh 125lbs and can hit around 32mph WOT. I have my engine and bike mounted in a way that there are almost no vibrations. But at WOT it sounds like im riding a timebomb with hundreds of bees(kinda like a angry dirtbike). I can take off without peddaling and can even pop a wheely if needed. Most of my rides are 1 mile to a store and 1 mile back. I can go up hills without peddaling also.

If you will be riding longer distances and want lower rpms, try a 41t or smaller but you will sacrifice some torque and may need to peddal to get going. If you just ride around the block or short distances the 44t works fine.
