Default Re: CVT with large sprocket????

I just wanted to keep it simple....
I'm not experienced with Jackshafts at all.
The CVT adds enough stuff to worry about.
I can spend $30 or $40 on a sprocket and be done.

Oh, and all PB CVTs reverse rotation.
They have a gear box (3.75 to 1) before the output.

Keep in mind, the CVT will allow you to pull the max gearing
for top speed you're used to, but will add a TON of low end to it.
You take off like a rocket, as long as the Variator is tuned right.
