You may not have the power to hit the rev limiter with a 16 tooth on a stock bike, but it changes your gear ratio so it'll give you a higher speed when you hit the limiter the speedometer will be wrong so you'll need a gps or an app on your phone to check the correct speedi believe the only option is 16T. anyone else chime in???
I just bought a 14T, and it arrived today.
I then googled it, to find i went the wrong direction! if I install it, i will have a reduction in top speed but better acceleration.
I'm not racing anyone so I would prefer faster top speed. The part i don't get is...
If I'm already redlining @ 4th at 73-74mph indicated... by changing the sprocket how would i be able to go faster since it redlines at 73-74?
I don't get it...
latena,You are looking at it wrong shoeie. It doesn't redline at 73-74 MPH, look at it as redlining at 9500 RPM in 4th. By changing sprockets you can make that a whole slew of different MPH numbers. The only reason to go with a 16t sprocket up front is if you find yourself hitting the rev limiter with the stock front sprocket often. If you don't hit the rev limiter with stock sprockets then you are wasting your time throwing on the 16t.
Ordered a 16T from amazon, I hope it fits, because i just called Jt Sprockets and they said that they don't offer a sprocket for groms.Yeah, I read that thread. The 16t isn't that expensive and takes all of 5-10 minutes to change, so roll the dice and let us know how it works for you.
Yes, I had been told that. So when I make speed tests I will need to use an app on my gps to find my actual speed.Be aware, when you change sprockets, your MPH indicator WILL be off.
This is not true! CAMIN is right. Any change to your gearing front or rear will affect the speedo accuracy. A change to your rear tire tire size will have an effect on it too!do a plus 1 or 2 in the rear. no speedo change.
