So can we talk about gear ratios. I did some search, looked at the two stroke tuners handbook. No real discussion of gearing. So hear is what I am thinking, ratio of rear teeth/front teeth gives you a number. As that number decreases your top speed will increase proportionately and your torque will decrease proportionally. So smaller rear sprocket or larger front = faster top speed with less get up and go. Does that sound right? Am I thinking about this correctly?
So I have also heard various things about the benefits of making the rear sprocket bigger/smaller versus making the front sprocket bigger/smaller. Does it matter how the ratio is adjusted (front or rear) or is the effect only mediated by the ratio change?
Essentially my thought is to take a za50 set up running 18x40 to 20x36. With the aim of increasing top speed, not too worried with torque as it is a two speed and pretty peppy.
