Default Re: Where can I get a new sprocket?

If you are still going up those hills you might find that the faster sprocket isn't any advantage. Not if you have to pedal to get up when you didn't with the 44... I know I go up some hills that are pretty steep with the 44 plus a very small wheel and I think I could walk it almost as fast, but with the bigger wheel it actually sounded like the engine was changing pitch when it came under stress. So I went back to the small wheel. Now the engine races or flat ground. I usually throttle it back and do about twenty on the flats. I'm going to have to buy a speedometer so I can have a more accurate idea. I think I'm the only person running that small a wheel on the back end, so I don't have anyone to ask.
