Default 24 m.p.h.???

I have a star fire 58 cc motor , and I am running a 24" rear tire with a 40 tooth sprocket and I top out at about 24 m.p.h. Is this because of the 24" rear tire or is it more to do with the sprocket size? If I were to switch to a 26" rear tire How much faster might I go? If I put a smaller sprocket on how much would that help?
