third gear?

3 posts in this topic

I'd like to get your opinions on using third gear through out the entire track. I tried this last night at practice and felt as though I was faster. I was able to lug and clutch out of tight corners and hook up better. anyway, does any one else do this? Of course I up shift for the straights. I also got my first hole shot on my third race ever. 15 riders on the gate. How do I get smiles on my post because I would like one right here. :D:):D

Click on the smile legend to the left, where you make your post. It will provide the instruction :D

I did read an article at MXA. They recommended you gear your bike to be able to run third all the time or at least most of the time.

Good Luck

Bill :)

Clutch use is bike abuse. :)

The concensus is to not use the clutch in turns. On most tracks I used second for everything but the fastest straights and biggest jumps. That's with 14/50 sprockets. But, I'm a revver not a lugger.
