Would a 12/stock sprocket combo cause any problems with my 15 grom? The overall ratio looks about the same as a 14/40. I live in town and speed limits barely pass 40mph. Im wanting to gear for stunting.

I agree with m in sc. 12 is just a small sprocket. I know they're cheaper than rear sprockets, but I'd recommend a larger rear instead. You can get a chain from Steady Garage for cheap if that's the reason you want to go down in front instead of up in the rear.

Depending on which kart track I'm running, I'll use 12/40, 13/40, 14/40, and 14/45. That being said, the 13 front is really hard on the chain slider, and the 12 basically eats it. I would suggest a bigger rear sprocket and larger chain if you prefer gearing so low around town. I really love 14/40 around town, personally.
