Gearing a te610
« on: April 13, 2017, 07:46:55 am »
To all those wonderfully intelligent TE owners and other folk.
Will I get any benefit changing the sprockets on my te 610 to a 14/47? Note, stock is 15/45.

I've been contemplating gearing mine slightly taller for longer trips, as it has more than enough power.

Standard gearing of 15/45 is a good all rounder ratio - Bike revs 4300rpm @ 100kph
14/47 will give you serious technical climbing abilities but will reduce cruising ability - Bike will rev 4800rpm @ 100kph
I use 14/45 when I do Lesotho trip - Bike will rev 4500rpm @ 100kph
For a high speed cruising trip I will gear 16/45 - Bike will rev 4000rpm @ 100kph
I like to play with front sprocket size only...easier/cheaper to change
KDX200 gone
YZ 250 gone
Husky TE610 one left
KTM 500 XC-W latest addition

Tony, I played around and 15/47 is the way to go. Very good all round ratio.

The difference between 15/46 and 15/47 is like 2%, so it would almost come down to what teeth sprocket you can readily purchase, not much in it.
BD it is interesting that we both came to the same gearing. maybe it is because it works!

TE 610 needs lower gearing as 6th gear stock is like an overdrive with not much ability/power for overtaking besides gearing down. I like Big Dom's setup 15/46

Are you on 15/47 currently?

Straatkat. Your current ratio?

I have been running 15/47 since my first sprocket change. Also bought a 13 front to learn to wheelie, but it is a horrendous ratio.

Thanks Bertie. 15/47 it will be then.

On the last trip with TK and Greg, I could only keep up on the fast tar sections with TK, by slip streaming behind him.

Technical climbing ability will improve, which is actually the most important consideration.

Looks like at the moment my te is the fastest one out there. Hey Bertie!....................love pushing buttons.
OK, so it's a tossup between stock and a 15/47.
