Gearing Question.

i wanted to see if somebody could find me a rear sprocket smaller than a 44 tooth. its for an 03 crf450r. maybe a 15-17 up front. if you can, how many links would my chain need? any feedback is appreciated. thanks a billion.

15 is the biggest that will fit in the front. And you will probably have to grind the tab on the swing arm a bit to get it to fit.

I got a 42 rear from sprocketspecialists.com

What would be the point of gearing that high ?? are you planning on racing Bonneville Salt Flats for land speed records ??

Gearing that high will kill all the bottom end you have and most of your mid range power , and it will kill your clutch , from slipping it trying to get going , you will be in 2nd gear at best on the freeway , as i am guessing this is for street use , as the bike will be completely useless for any dirt riding

and you will start having clearance issues at the case depending on the chain used

not to ride it, because i dont want to damage my bike. i am using gearing commander to see what speed my bike would reach with the best gearing combo possible. my bike starts to get speed wobbles at about 70 mph anyway so 120+ mph is just stupid. i am intersted in speed so i was curious. no worries here. thanks though

understand the gearing comander is only giving you "theoretical" top speeds, your bike won't pull those low ratios, and your rear will likely be limited to a 38t due to the hub.

i know that. i just think its interesting to see those big numbers. its like a.. a self esteem booster lol
