no but first gear is fairly high to start with and the rest are close ratios. if there was a way to lower first gear the rest would be fine. I have just bought an 01 426 myself and find stalling it more than usual so I am playing around with sprocket sizes. Originally it had a 14 front and 46 rear which was way to tall for track but OK on the beach. At the moment I using 13front and 50 rear so far so good but for tighter tracks a I am going to try a 12 for the front.

good luck PK

Greyracer, thanks, lets me play with the calculator to see where I am.

PDK068, I am runing a 12t/49t for trails in the Nevada desert, waiting for the 12 oz flywheel weight to show up, this should put me in the range I wish to be, yea top speed is gone, but for me, so what.
