Speaking of spockets, what effect does using the sizes you reccomended have?
I forgot the way it works going up and down teeth, front and rear. I was thinking of making mine hit harder off the line, one of my friends says I want to turn it into a 'wheelie machine'. Which way would I go with this in regards to front and rear sizes?
A little off topic- I was thinking of getting a replacement swingarm, having a shop widen it quite a few inches, using a wider wheel, and mounting a 250 to 300 rear tire.
Any input on how to reliably make the front tooth align with the rear? My best guess is to have a new shaft made. I'm also wonding if having some sort of spacer machined will work.Regards- Jonathon Jay "Cynicism is an unpleasant way of telling the truth." - Lillian Hellman> From: blackgpz at> To: gpzlist at> Subject: Re: New sprockets and chain> Date: Sun, 24 Aug 2008 21:43:20 -0400> > I have had excellent results with Sprocket Specialists > ( You need a #607 front sprocket and a #292 > rear.
