« on: March 05, 2018, 03:54:31 pm »
Looking for a few things.. sprocket, speedo cable, etc.. where is the best place.. trac mac  and a few other places like Wicked Cycles dont stock kle parts at all

while im here, did kle have a 42 rear sprocket.. what sprocket ratios are you running, I currently have a 15 front and a 44 rear.. its not a good combination, was thinking of going 15/40? thoughts?

When I got the KLE the bike had 17/44 which seems to be the standard ratio according to the manual I have. So when it came time to replace I simply asked for standard sprockets but was given 15/46. This combination made the bike too buzzy, revving too much. I then purchased a 17 front sprocket and put that on and that seems to work well. 5000 rpm at 100 km/h, 6000 rpm at 120 km/h etc..
Chain and sprockets I got from Speedyquip here in PE. They seemed to have the parts on the shelf, maybe they fit other bikes too..

Different year models came out with different sprockets, which is why you getting the variation.. I forget the years but one came out with a 44 standard and then another model came out with a 46 std, both with 15 front.
