Default Re: 16 Tooth Sprocket

the engine sprocket is 11 teeth. so anything less than 11 teeth as a drive sprocket, will be overdriven ( 11 tooth to 11 tooth would be a 1:1 ratio, normally a final drive ratio ) .. I don't have any calculators for sprocket gear ratio's but they are around..... if you were to try to go 60+ with a 1:1 final drive or even an overdrive.. you would have to start off down a hill or start by getting pulled up to 60 MPH by a tow vehicle.. the motor will not have enough to pull itself to speed at those gear ratios but would probably hold those speeds once there.
