    Hey,
    Has anyone seen a web site that sells a drive sprocket that has less than 9 teeth?

    The reason I want to know is because I want to give my bike some more torque for hills by downsizing the engine sprocket, but the smallest one I can find is a 9 tooth and I dont know how much difference a 9 will make, rather than a ten

    If there is a site out there that sells a less than 9 tooth drive sprocket...please share!

    Thanks a mil!

    Howdy BikeW/M. I dunno, never saw any. For better hill climbing, wouldn't just a larger rear sprocket do the same for ya? Cheap and easy to find.

    Either way, you will trade speed for power. Unless I am wrong, in which case you won't. But I am not, so you will. (LOL, lost my self there) But some one will correct me if I am mistaken. But I'm not. if I'm am...

    hehe, I'll stop now.

    Wow, thanks BWM. Would be a whole lot easier then swapping out the rear sprocket.

    I don't think either one of those sprockets will work on the engine...
    I believe the SBP sprocket is for the jackshaft & not for the engine, & the other probably won't fit without modification.

    I did some research and the #40 sprocket won't fit because it is too wide. However, the SBP sprocket WILL, because it is just a little thinner than a 415 sprocket. (The chain will still fit on it)

    will it fit the shaft BWM? Asking. Be a lot easier to swap out then the rear sprocket. You would be on to some thing if it will fit!
