Current sprocket setup, need help

Recommended Posts

OK, I have the SM wheels on my S, and 15/44 setup, and I can run 79 mph. What sprocket setup do I need to run faster? 41?

I am confused on sprocket setups at this point?????🙂

So smaller rear will give me less rpms and more top end? What am I missing here? It has to be the number of teeth that I am screwing up in my head???

the big point it is this

the S rear tire is taller than the SM that is why S has 15 44 and SM has 15 41 from the factory

after you do all the math the gearing ends up being the same

16-41 is damn near the same gearing as 15-38 whin using SM wheels

15-41 is the same as 16-44 whin using SM wheels

So what is 15 51 in SM then????? 🙂

The smaller (less teeth) the rear sprocket the less gear reduction. So in theory less RPM at any speed than a larger sprocket (more teeth), and given enough power, more top speed.

I have 15/38 on my SM and 15/51 on my "S" wheels:thumbsup: Stock SM is 15/41:prof:

So you have separate chains as well then too eh debby?

a 41 tooth rear will help lots on the highway but the top speed of the drz is limited due to the fact that its an aerodynamic nightmare no matter how large of a sprocket you put on.

Put on the 41.
