    ok so today i went on a little ride and wound up at a track that had been torn thru some bushland. it goes for miles and its AWSOME!! :tt1:but realised a few things that i wasnt happy about.

    1. punctures lots of em
    2.needs lower gearing
    3.not suitable for my daily ride

    so for all intensive purposes i need a bike that i use on track only. with the exception of a 2km ride to get there

    and some tires that are up for it and wont go flat on the first corner SLIME????. i have a 44tooth on it now is there anything bigger. my rims handle it fine and if i break em i got lots, so any ideas will be great

    thanks MIKE :cool:

    yeah i thought about it and the gearing is my issue. its a good little motor RSE 48cc goes hard as it is, plus only thing i want to upgade is the exhaust later.

    the saying is actually "for all intents and purposes" .
    you need to get a 56 - 60 tooth rear sprocket for low end torque.

    thanks motorpsyco for the correction:bowdown: it makes sense now.
    the 60 tooth sounds great this track is NUTS and low gearing is whats needed here:devilish: put slime in the tires today and not one flat when i got home this afternoon:sweatdrop:

    Hey blue48, im running a 66cc and I take it out the trails with hills, jumps and sometimes mud. I run the 44t on mine but since your running the 48cc, I believe a 56t would be your best bet for the ride there and the trails, the trails are so fun with these bikes, night time in the woods...even better!
