    G'day trendsetters, im looking into smaller rear wheel sprockets, 32/36 tooth, around that area.

    anyways anyone know a place in western Sydney that can machine 2 or 3? or is someone got a rear sprocket or 2 that their willing to sell, if so, hold onto the sprocket and give us a heads up (with details or where your located (roughly or send us a pm), what sorta sprocket (36 tooth? 32? whatever?) how much you want for it (may be able to pickup, tack on postage) actually just hit us up with a pm of all the info, and the reason im looking for 2 or 3 sprockets is because me and a few mates are keen, but if ya only got one still send us a pm

    that is all

    27 tooth????
    i think that would be pushing it, but then again more torque and powah

    and stop upgrading your 80cc, by the time i get my 50cc you'll be flying!!!
     
  4. Hi,

    Heh heh....Go small or go home! ;-O

    27T is about the smallest that will work on a factory 9 hole mount AND Top Hat Sprocket Adapter mount......BUT....If you mount direct to the disc brake hub you can
    (if you have a slight downhill or serious power) mount as small as a 15T!

    I know of a bunch of guys in FL that have 27's.....

    Hi Guys just reading you add,iv just taken a 29 tooth OFF my bike ,as you say it had loads of torque BUT you had go like crazzzzy before you could let the clutch out,or it would stall,we have a speed camera along the street,and it has a 40MPH limit,and you can set it off every time at 3/4 throtle,so what it did in a strait line on a track i dont no????:whistling::whistling::whistling:

    oh yah, if you could source some steel cut ones fairly cheaply ( exchange rate kills us Aussies) i'd probably get a couple shipped and pass the spares onto my friends :)

    Torque is the ability to "pull"
    If your going to a smaller toothed sprocket your reducing your torque but your increasing your cruising speed.Crawling speed will also be increased as u go lower in teeth.....................there's ALWAYS a tradeoff.

    Has anyone tried using BMX front chainrings? They are the correct pitch and are thicker than MTB ones, would just be a matter of drilling out the bolt mounts and the centre to clear the hub.

    yeah yeah, we just love the OHHH S*** effect when we Launch it off at full throttle, Thus smaller sprockets.
    And if you read some of my posts i wanna keep up with an 80cc any way, shape or form possible and thus Larger sprockets, so i gotta decide, Higher speed or Faster take off, keeping up with an 80cc would say smaller sprocket, and now im getting confused

    "keeping up with an 80cc would say smaller sprocket"........correct;less torque though so he'll leave u for dead on hills or acceleration.
