All Balls steering headbearings...

You can get from MArio at Dirtrider in Killarney Gardens. I believe MP Customvalve also stock All Balls...

You can get them for less than half of Suzuki parts...

Smaller rear sprocket = higher top end and vica versa
Smaller front sprocket = lower top speed and vica versa

Countershaft sprocket makes a bigger difference than the rear

OK, lets see...

High speed, you want larger front and smaller rear sprocket.

And the opposite for pulling power.

I have 2 sets of totally different rims.

The rear dirt wheel is 18" and the rear SM wheel is 17". That obviously plays with your gearing too. The same sprocket combo on both wheels will result in the SM setup being much shorter (more pulling power) because of the smaller wheel.

Therefore I also have 2 seperate chains and sprocket sets for the 2 platforms.

When I just got the SM wheels, I ran 15-44 (standard S gearing) on them... It was just stupid, but lots of fun...  >:D

You can buy a kickstart kit, $200 ish

I ran 14-44 for dunes, mountain riding etc. And 15-44 for gravel riding.
With the 15-44, it sits easy at 120, and runs up to 150, and still wheelies all the way to top gear

I wouldnt go 15-40 off-road with a standard motor...

You will pretty much just use 1st to 4th, with 5th as an overdrive... And it will suck on technical terrain.

This is just my opinion, of course. You will never know til you try it...

For really long distance I use 15-41
