    The area around me is moderately hilly. You can't find much of any extended straight spots so I was thinking should I go for a 56 tooth but since I only weigh 150 I was thinking I could probly get by with a smaller sprocket. I will be going with a 43 or 49 cc I haven't decided on the motor yet.

    The bigger it is, the slower you go! But you get there real fast:)

    I would say to try the stock rear sprocket first!
    THEN, you will know for sure if you need a little more "pull" on the hills in your area.

    Yea, that is what I was thinking of doing. Most of the hills aren't that bad..but depends on what routes I go they can be killer.
