Postby datonamanmike » Thu May 16, 2013 9:57 pm

can someone please set me straight
I always thought is was

smaller rear sprocket = more top speed
bigger rear sprocket = more take off speed

smaller front sprocket=more top speed
bigger front sprocket= more take off speed

I think mopedlar missed it.

You are correct on the rear sprocket.

smaller front sprocket: more takeoff speed
larger front sprocket: more top speed
