Re: 36 tooth sprocket on a chinagirl ????
I love the way my Pig cruises with a 36 tooth sprocket. A tuned pipe helps make up for the loss of low end and also boosts top speed a bit. I have a few small hills and it handles them fine with my fat behind. Less vibration makes me happy!
Second best upgrade after tuned pipe IMHO.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
