    I've got a 48 tooth sprocket on my bike now, but it's not giving me enough torque to get up a rather steep hill on my way to work. I'm pulling around 300lb so I need as much torque as possible. So, will either a 54t or 60t give me what I need, and if so, where can I get one. Any time I see a 60t sprocket online it referes to them as being #35 pitch, and i have no idea what that refers to or if it will work.
    Here is the link i found.

    #35 60T Sprocket 4 Bolt

    I know that I'll have to drill out 9 holes to get it to fit the rim, but will it work in all other respects? If not, any other suggestions out there?

    ARE You are using a happytime engine and motorized bicycle parts .
    The 35 pitch is a scooter size
    You will have to change your drive sprocket and chain to use a 35 pitch rear sprocket.
    WAYYYY too much work when a direct replacement is available easily.

    Your scooter place does have a nice price on throttle cables though.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I do have a Motor Kit, not a scooter conversion or anything of the like. I only mentioned the #35 Pitch because a generic Google Search of 60t sprocket brings up several sprockets that are, of course, #35 pitch. I would assume that this is for go-carts or something of the like, but i didn't know how that compared to the standard sprockets used by our motor kits. I have seen the chain referred to as being 415, but I don't know how that compares to #35, so that's where my question came from.

    Thanks.

    #35 is 3/8" pitch, I believe- 415 is 1/2" pitch.
    Go for the 56 tooth mentioned above- it is a standard motorized bike size (have one in a box in my garage). Should be available from several motorized bicycle sellers.

    ...or you could order a very reasonably priced custome sprocket from here
