12x56 gearing on a magnum

I.R.E. Mike Pee /

Gonna try it this weekend on my magnum with the MK65. Wheelies galore! Maybe I should take video.

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

Haha. Nice. I saw those huge bitches on treats and thought, "why do they even make sprockets that big?".

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

Hillclimb magnum lol

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

Totally... I wonder what your top speed could possibly be with a 56 rear sprocket? 15MPH?

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

haha yeah mike. get that on video.

0-30 2.5 seconds

top speed: 30

lol

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

1 speed. Feels like a 3 speed. Go go go, clutch engages, go, go, gets on pipe, GO GO GO to 50mph. But that's with 17x40 gearing.

With 12x56 it should be GO GO, wheelie, GO, clutch, GO, barely hit pipe, go to 32mph. hehe

We'll see how it goes. It's supposed to rain all weekend though... :(

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

What's your setup? And where are the pics? And are you running 12x56 gearing? If not, you should. All the cool kids are doing it.

I had 13x45 on my polini e50 she topped out at 35, it was a danm fun ride getting there though.

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

14x45 on a metra big port with a simonini...the most fun you can have on a moped.

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

I had 12*48 for a while on a mk65 and a tecno hunter. I tuned the clutch, ant the bike would actually lift the front wheel up at the chutch engaging and the pipe's powerband. I got sick of only going 35 though.

It seems pretty scarry accelerating that fast too. I could fly up hills and would barely slow down.

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

yeah, I ran 12 x 45 with a mk65 I got to top speed in like 2 seconds, the engine revved so high and so fast it scared me a little, and I never tried it again. Almost sounded like it was just going to keep revving forever and blow up!

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

mike i will hold the camera

Re: 12x56 gearing on a magnum

i just tried 15x45 tonight on my polini, and yeah, good times! revs crazy high. made me put a drop more 2stroke in the tank
