speed spocket

Do any of you know what a speed spocket is because some ppl say it makes your ped go faster.

A speed sprocket is a different sprocket with more or less teeth on it to change performance. a bigger sprocket on the engine or a smaller sprocket on the wheel will give you more top speed, but takes away acceleration. a smaller sprocket on the engine or a bigger sprocket on the back gives you more low end torque and acceleration, but takes away from top speed.

Re: speed spocket

Yes, its just a sprocket on the rear hub that is smaller ( less teeth ) than the one that's on there now. You can also use a larger ( more teeth ) countershaft sprocket, that's the sprocket that is attatched to the engine or belt pulley. For mopeds it's usually easier to put a smaller rear sprocket on and shorten the chain.

I'm not concerned w/top end-- I'm going to go for pulling power-- When I get the piston kit, I plan on using both front and rear power sprockets.

Ree-- Do you know, would this give a ton of low end or what? I'm pretty close to having enough loot to buy it.

Yeah, you'd lose tons of top end, but you'd prolly be able to spin em on start.

You gotta Bi-Turbo on that thing ? cause I would do both...sprocket mods and Bi-Turbo, you'd have mega jumpoff power.

Don't forget the kickstand...mind.
