Re: gearing

a larger rear sprocket gives you more power and decreases speed. a smaler front sprocket does the same.

Re: gearing

power is such a gay term.

largerback/smaller front = more revs = lower gear = slower theoretical top speed

Re: gearing

a larger rear sprocket doesnt give you any more power, it just gives you more bottom end, you will have to shift gears sooner, and you will loose speed

Re: gearing

Think of it like a 10 speed bicycle. The big sprocket in the back is first gear. Gets you started in a hurry but your top speed is limited.
What's your application for?

Re: gearing

ACTUALLY putting a larger rear sprocket on your motor cycle will give you more power. not at the motor but at the wheel. or other wise known as rwhp-rear wheel horse power. this is true with any application with a transmission like a car or street bike or pedal bike.

When in doubt, GAS IT

Re: gearing

a bigger rearsprocket will give you more tork(better for wheelies) but will decrease your speed
