Gearing Ratios

The effects of changing sprocket teeth size

Front

Fitting a FRONT sprocket with a LESSER number of teeth than original fitment by the motorcycle manufacturer may have the effect of lower overall gearing ratios:

  • Increased acceleration
  • Reduced maximum speed
  • Increased motor RPM at a given speed

Fitting a FRONT sprocket with a GREATER number of teeth than original fitment by the motorcycle manufacturer may have the effect of higher overall gearing ratios:

  • Decreased acceleration
  • Increase in maximum speed
  • Decreased motor RPM at a given speed
Rear

Fitting a REAR sprocket with a LESSER number of teeth than original fitment by the motorcycle manufacturer may have the effect of higher overall gearing ratios:

  • Decreased acceleration
  • Increased maximum speed
  • Decreased motor RPM at a given speed
