How can I decrease my rear wheel ratio ?
« on: Dec 18, 2012, 04:19:14 AM »
I would like to have less engine speed (less vibrations) at cruising speed.

What options do I have ? smaller front sproket, bigger rear sproket ? do I have to change also other stock parts, like the belt ?
From where can I get, if available somewhere ?

I know that, this mod, will decrease also HP & TQ, but for me is not so important, I'm not looking for max HP & TQ.

Thanks
Marcel

You will need( a rear sprocket, spacers, a belt ) And mostly-TIME. If you decide you want to change your rear sprocket. You can go with a 61 tooth sprocket and 130 tooth belt. The Gates belt is a better quality belt.    http://www.ebay.com/itm/190751607697?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649.       When you get a sprocket. Do not . Get one with recessed holes. It wont work. I tried it made the mistake because i didnt see that it had the recessed holes . The belt is not quite as wide as the stock belt. But the belt will work. Take a quick look in their at the stock  belt. The front sprocket is a lot bigger than it too.
Some prefer medicine. I prefer my Raider.

Actually,if you want to reduce engine speed,you will need either a bigger front sprocket,or a smaller rear sprocket.The belt also needs to be replaced.The popular option is what Sweet Tooth described.
The biggest mistake of my life was not buying a raider sooner

Thank you for information.

Yes, you are right, tapping error, bigger front and smaller rear.  ;)

I will continue to follow on the other topic, do not have two topics for the same subject.

Thank you very much.
