effect of total weight on gear ratio
« on: June 25, 2020, 02:39:09 PM »
final drive ratio calculations are straight forward. However, am wondering if a bigger guy (me) needs to consider a final drive target different than a smaller person?

Thanks

That is a factor.    Build it to what your buddies are running.   Get seat time and adjust.  It took me a few years to find the sweet spot.
