    Hi I was trying to figure out if I ran a 28tooth sprocket in the rear how high do I need to rev it before I can let the clutch out. Half throttle full throttle?

    none of the above with a set up like that you need to assist that little motor with lots of pedaling at least 8 mph before releasing the clutch. If you don't mind rebuilding your clutch every 6 months you can use it like a motorcycle and pull away from a dead stop with no pedaling. That's a real small deal you got there, try not to get to many tickets for speeding.
