    Ok here is the deal

    i have an OCC chopper...and my frinds use 26inch wheeled bikes...a mountain and a stretch cruiser

    from a dead stop...they stand no chance in ****.....over a short distance

    but give them enuff time ..there speed builds up and i cant keep up at all

    i have a standard sprocket that came with the kit..whats that 44 48 something

    now what would a good sprocket size be so that i can keep up with them 32 30 28???

    u chopper folks mut have an idea

    thanks Madwack

    a stock sprocket is usually 44 tooth, you would probably want a 36 tooth sprocket to keep up with them, but it will be a bit harder to start and wont accelerate as quick.

    I've had enough of being stuck at 24mph lol, cant wait to get my 36 toother!

    actually, the occ has a 20" rear tire, so it torques out nicely even with a 36

    I agree...Jim (livefast) is a nice guy
    I have done a lot of face to face business with him
     
  7. HI,

    In doing the math, if your friends are running a stock 44T on 26" wheels you would need a 33T or 34T (Math actually comes out to 33.85 but obviously you can't have fractional teeth) to equal them.....Of course you could drop a tooth or two (if it's not too hilly) and leave 'em! ;-)

    Have Fun!

    27 t

    **** u gonna hall arse

    right now i haven brake issues.....they as tight as they can go...yet my braking ability is LOLzers.....not good....im gonna try replacing the pads...and see if that helps.....more speed atm is gonna kill me....parts arent here yet so i go mess with the pads...good braking is a must.....i wish i could put a disk brake on the back..Wish.....i know braking with the front brake is better...but if ya hit gravel and use yer front brake..yer dead....and with how the brake lines are set up to 1 hand ..2 brake cables ....so i cant pick or choose my front or back.....ill go with more back braking then front....

    does that make sence :)

    the 1st gen stingray didnt come with front brakes so it makings stopping fast a little risky but i have locked up the rear tire at 20 and i didnt slide side to side at all

    Will the OCC Stingrays take an engien without mods? That rear tire is HUGE, you don't have chain clearance problems?

    yep

    yea they work just fine you just gotta tinker a little
     
  19. lol i designed the first i would know and these brakes stink but i found that using a the front crank sprocket for the rear works best combined with a 12 tooth counter sprocket and a 5:1 tranny at 14grand rpms yeilds about 54.3mph

    and to date i have never seen a better chopper set up then the one i designed. right now im working on a kit and a website so people can get these bikes and stop going to live fast.
