Reply To: Teething or should I drop a tooth?


Stock gearing 16/40t.


I first dropped a tooth on front, then wanted more and went +2 on rear. So I’m at 15/42, which is 2.80 ratio. For what it’s worth you could just go 16/44 and get the same ratio (2.80). It should still fit with stock chain.


I would have have to look up the parts later if you want. The front is one husky and the rear is aftermarket aluminum as weight is king on this bike.


Of course my changes are more about more low end grunt at the expense of top speed. The vibes are not that bad for me on highway but I do have 2 other bikes I can ride if I need to do a lot of highway miles.
