Sprocket Swap





GMKILLER5.0

I know it's probably been beaten to death like a :deadhorse: but I want to go up on the rear sprocket on my Gen I. So I am currently at 17/40. I was thinking about 17/43 or 17/44? At what point do I need to replace the chain? What are your recommendations? I use the bike basically as a cruiser, and like to have a little fun. Just looking for a little more response when I get on it.

Thanks Much!!

Are you sure? I'm running 18/43, and 17/44 should take very close to the same chain length.

Regardless, try 17/43, GMKILLER5.0. It'll wake it up plenty :).

not true....and the more you change the more the ratio differs
gearingcommander.com

17/43 = 172.9 16/40= 174.9 not the same..not even close 2 mph difference @ top gear and 10,000 rpm
if u multiply it times 2 its off even more 15/40=164 17/46=161.6 2.4 mph difference @ top gear and 10,000 rpm

in the chart stock is 17/40 currant is 16/40 and custom is 17/43 for reference...vortex sprokets is what i use

Going down on the front wears the chain out faster than going up in the rear :whistle:

Plus, changing the rear gets rid of the ugly stocker along with the added performance, and less chain wear, seems like, a WIN, WIN, WIN situation!!!! :moon:

I decided to go with 43 rear. It seems be the natural progression od this madness.
