Hi JohnG81 Can Cycle said:I know I have neglected regular updates on the racing, but the shop is experiencing a 50% increase in business and it has kept me hopping.
But, I want to share something we are getting ready to do:
The last three tracks we have been on have had long straightaways. I am tapped out in 5th gear before I get 1/3 down the straightaways. Top speed of about 128 MPH.
We have just scanned and modeled the countershaft sprocket. We have ordered the tooling to cut the chain teeth, and have the tooling for cutting the internal spline.
I am making a one tooth up sprocket for the bike to try a get a little more speed on the top end. At the same time we are making a one tooth down sprocket for shorter track and street application. The one tooth down will cut top speed, but will make the bike faster from stop light to stop light.
I am thinking about making a short run of the one tooth down sprocket. Before I decide on the quantity, I thought I would see how much interest there was from this group in acquiring a one tooth down countershaft sproket
How are your plans going for the one tooth down sprocket? I am still very interested.
