    I am looking for a place to buy a 11 tooth front sprocket. What I have found so far is a freewheel sprocket that requires having pullstart. Please point me in the right direction. thanks :D

    Thats dax sells a ten tooth front sprocket that works with both BMX and 415 chain,
    It solved my chain binding problems. When I rode a happytime.

    jaguar, if your engine is a HT, going up to an 11 tooth sprocket won't allow enough chain clearance from the casings.
    If you're trying to increase top speed, a much better idea is to buy a smaller rear sprocket, maybe a 36T instead of the standard 44T.

    I've got a fat tire that only has 1/8" clearance from the chain and I was thinking of replacing the chain cover and welding a 11 or 12 tooth sprocket to the existing one to gear up and to clear the tire more.

    I doubt that the 11T will fit in the space. With a 10T and 415H chain, there is virtually no space left between the chain and casing.
    You might be in a bit of a spot. Possibly a slightly narrower rear tyre?
    Let us know how you go. If you want an 11T to weld to the original, anything with a 1/2" pitch will do the job. Possibly a scooter front sprocket.

    *sees a possible market for nonstandard HT sprockets*

    i shall look into this soon...


    oh...DONT WELD THE SPROCKETS!

    while it works, you lose the "hardness/temper". so you gotta change em more often.. annoying when you have to make em.

    much better to braze/silver solder...
