AT sprockets
« on: October 01, 2017, 09:22:37 am »
Has anybody changed the gearing on their AT, I am thinking of going either one smaller on the CS or two to three bigger on the rear?

I donít know where the speedo reads the speed from and if it is the CS, I would rather modify the rear as that speedo already lies like a cheap watch showing more than 10% over

I know Edgy and Losper have gone one tooth less on drive sprocket to shorten 1 st gear a bit they say it is much better.

I went 1 tooth smaller up front and I prefer it, Losper says he went back to stock?
I dont know or really worry what the speedo says :lol8:

We are doing a long non technical ride early in the new year. I am looking to go 1 tooth bigger on the rear to see what it does to the fuel consumption. Does anyone know where I can source such a sprocket? I only seem to be able to find a standard rear.

I found my sprocket on the pbr website http://pbr.it/ then I was able to get it from the Trac Mac store once I knew the part number
