Used my usual trick to break the chain as you can see to the left of the tensioner. The spot welds are barely visible where I broke the chain.
I am glad I finally swapped to the 36. It calms the bike down just right and still gives good cruising at lower speeds which make the motor happier.
I expect slightly better mileage too but we shall see...
My bike goes 32 MPH with a 44 tooth WOT wound out tight,,,it cruises nice at 20-24,,will the 36 tooth allow me to cruise at 25-28,, what is your top speed now,,35,,and how is she on the hills???
My 44 pulls me up the steepest hills around here no pedal at all.
