primary drive sprockets

Recommended Posts

I see in rocky mountain they have a set of primary drive 14/47 sprockets for $22 (steel ones) any one have any problems with this brand? I know after doing the jet kit, the float bowl screw problem, that some of the bolts and screws on our bikes can be a pain. Any known issues with changing sprockets?

I used the same set - 14/47 combo from Rocky Mountain for like $22 - been on about a year and no problems at all :cry:

I've got 1000 miles of hard 100% off-road riding on mine. Still look good. :cry:

No problems with my primary drive sprockets (14/47). :cry:

I have about 1000 off road miles on mine.

I didn't have any problems changing sprockets.

Some people have had problems with the rear sprocket and stripping the fasteners. The trick I learn several years ago is to put a box end wrench on the nut on the back side and give it a smack with a dead blow hammer. It will loosen the nun up enough to be able to use the allen wrench on the bolt. If you try to do anything with the allen bolt you will have a very good chance of stripping the head out.

You get both for $22 ?

Wow...thats a great deal...

Any advice on gearing for someone who finds himself stuck in first gear while riding trails ? Im geared at 14/47 (stock "e" gearing) and want to quit revving the engine so hard in 1st...any suggestions ?

Shift. :cry: :cry: sorry, couldn't resist.

BTW, I have the PD sprockets 14/47 too and using the 12MM box end, made it a breeze. I initially tried using a socket, etc. with the allen and it was bad.

:cry: good one....I left myself open to that one...

seriously; Im sure this belongs in a different thread but had to ask...2nd gear seems to bog when I shift, but then 1st gear seems to rev too hard.... Should I drop 1 tooth in front and mybe add 2 teeth in the rear ? 13/49 ? anyone ?

Dropping one in the front and adding two in the back is not much of a change. You may not even notice this - IMO

:cry:

this should give you some idea.

you can look at the different sprockets and see what effect it has on your final ground speed.

myself i like 14 49 combo

but others have close ratios 13 47 is a little slower but the front sprocket is cheeper..

good luck..
