Re: rear sprocket and chain (cintas)

It will help if you tell us what bike you have. I would say buy your stuff from Section8..........but after what poor Nick went through I don't know. Sorry had to say it.

Re: rear sprocket and chain (cintas)

Well, if it's a 748 like mine I went from 14/38 to 14/40 and it really helped wake up the bike. I did it all at once, so I can't isolate what did what, but that sprocket change, a light flywheel and the Marchesinis (duh) really made it into a new bike.
(edit: If the setup is like mine, you will use the same length chain going from the 38 to the 40. Also, I believe that it's best to replace the chain if you change the sprockets).

Anyway, the bike pulls much harder now. If I could do wheelies, the bike would probably comply with ease now. But I can't do wheelies .......

Like Phil said, take a look at Section 8 and they'll take care of you. (right after you open the box and it's actually a 60 tooth rear and you spent all day working in the driveway in 135 deg. heat)


(Now, nick, that's just a joke. Don't worry, this will all be over soon and we'll look back on this and laugh.
)

Re: (cintas)

just like the x48's going up two in the rear will help , already has a 14 in the front
,, and adding a link or two would be in order when doing the change

but if you have the extra $ might as well do the 520 converstion thing

I left the front stock, chain stock and went up 2 teeth in the rear to a 41 on my 749 Dark. The bike pulls much better now, more pleasant to ride on the streets, and I still have good top end.

I may drop a tooth in the front but not just yet, I am happy with the setup for now and am looking at some other "stuff" to do with the bike in the meantime.

Hope that helps.
