Large,'re killin' me here...and I know you know better! Think about it for a moment. It doesn't matter what the tooth count's the ratio! A 250 tooth driving cog to a 1000 tooth driven cog is a 4:1 ratio. A 10 tooth driving cog to a 40 tooth driven cog is a 4:1 ratio.

Belt or chain makes no difference! It's the ratio from the engine to the rear wheel that counts.
