Default Re: Speed & insane vibrations

Go for the 36 sprocket- your cruising speeds will be at far less revs-
and that really cuts vibration

unless you are very heavy or riding a lot of very long very steep hills- go for a smaller sprock- I ride a 34 in flat florida on my 66cc- 39 on the 50cc but may change that to 36 someday

Also beach tires/ knobby tires contribute a lot to vibration- smooth tread helps if you want speed- and narrow doesn't hurt either- you could get some 1.75 or 1.50 tires and see a tremendous difference and rolll smoother
