Cog sizes
« on: March 13, 2005, 03:37:49 PM »
I'm looking at changing the cog sizes on the Bandit 250. Its a pre VVT 95 model. Any suggestions on ratio/cog sizes?

Cheers

gearbox cogs? or your chain and sprockets?
If the former i have no idea, for the latter 13:49 is standard ratio i'm putting a 12 on the front of mine to boost acceleration as 49 teeth was the biggest rear my local shop had listed for the B250. Was supposed to do it last week but the shop ordered a standard 13 tooth one by mistake.
I'll lose some top-end, but I wont miss it, and the increased acceleration should make it more fun around town.
