Sprocket Swap

Don't know if y'all remember that I switched to the 17-43 setup from stock. Well.... Thanks to Phobman for the stand he made me, now it's at 15-45

I'm jealous. What'd you pay for the sprockets?

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.

Running 15/45 right now myself. Clutch slipped the front wheel up yesterday out of the hole at a stop light... 1/4 mile later I had Johnny Fuzz Balls wagging his finger at me on the side of the road. It was a pretty ugly landing cuz I panicked and aborted hard when the front lofted faster than I expected, which made it easy to convince the safety fascist it was an accidental wheelie . He he.. asked me if it was a "new bike". I said no, but I hadn't been riding it much this year.. which is true.. cept when I do ride it I put the smack on it!

Rode away without a ticket!

Watch out for the fuzz, 15/45 sucks them in like a magnet!

25 for front, and 70 for rear. Call Dan Kyle Racing and let them know you're on WristTwisters.

I ave been considering a drastic gearing change but I still need to be able to ride anbout 110KM (or about 60 to 65 in american). Can the 919 do that with the
15/45's? I took the bike off road a few times and it was better than you would think except I had to ride the clutch to go slow enough.

check out the gearing chart to see what it would be turning;

http://www.919.org/
Go to mods look to gearing spread sheet/must exel(or I'd do it for ya but I've no exel)

According to this your speed with 15/45 gearing at 9500rpm in 6th gear would be 135mph and you would be doing 71mph at 5000rpm in 6th gear. I have the 15 tooth on the front right now and will be putting the 45 on the rear once I find or make a rear stand.
