So I bought a 136 x 1.25 ripsaw track at hay days and bought the tracks USA extension kit to upgrade a 2003 500 XCSP that has been ignored since the purchase of a 2008 IQ dragon. My question is what would be a good gear set up for the extended track? The stock gearing is 22/40. I was thinking 19/39....Now on the 2002 500 sks which was 136" the stock gearing was 18/41 according to the parts manual. Would this work? any input is appreciated.
Well I have been doing some research and found out I have a 74 pitch chain. Now do I have to use a gear ratio that uses a 74 pitch chain? for example my ratio now is 1.82 w/ a 74 pitch chain so to use the same chain I can go to 20/40 tooth gears w/ a gear ratio of 2.0. and 19/39 like I stated earlier would use a 72 pitch chain so I could not use that ratio with out replacing the chain? I wonder if the 2.0 would be good for the longer track?
Gearing sucks.....I dont want to lose to much top end but would like to get the motor to not have to work harder to get the added mass moving.
Wheres Madcow when you need him?
I also need to gear the 700 which has a 76 pitch chain and geared stock 25/41.
