If 36T is smaller than the 44T i have,that may be the way to go.

Again, i thank you for keeping in touch with my problem and ill update this thread to let everyone know how it goes.
You are very welcome and I look forward to hearing your results and hope that is a solid fix, and you will have a likely increase of 5-8mph added to your cruise speed as well, the 36t sprocket will reduce hill climb speed if it is a long hill but my bikeshVe 34 & 36t sprockets and they pull my 215lbs really good on the hills Round here in central Texas, if you have a free flowing exhaust and your carb is jetted properly youshould have acomfortable cruis speed of 30-34mph with a 36T sprocket on flat ground. Those are my results on my Huffy bike that has a unported jug and just a well tuned carb and a sbp expansion exhaust, I do have a Puch hi hi 50cc head on it now but my comfortable cruise speed is still 32-34mph before vibes get uncomfortable.

Best wishes to you.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
