  • now i understand that if i put a bigger rear sprocket and use the the stock 13t front sprocket, i will loose topend speed, but gain in initial pick up. mileage wont matter to me, as in the current setup i am getting between 45-50kmpl. But suppose i go in for a 14t front one and say a 46t rear of rtr180 the original equation would not change i guess, because i am putting a size bigger front one and a size bigger rear one... As u said, there would be increase in vibrations, how come?? i mean, how does the chain sprocket setup have a direct effect on the vibration??

      Sprockets form the external gear ratio and the cogs in the gearbox form the internal ratio.

      Hence,chain and sprocket have a direct affect on the :-

      1. Gear shifting smoothness
      2. performance (acceleration or top-end)
      3. Mileage
      4. Engine life

      My advise is,go for the 14/44 set-up.

      My girl's on 14/39,as i am interested in top-end and since she's got a bigger cc she can pull the taller gearing.

        ok... but will the ASS provide me this 14/44 setup?? because the 14t is the rtr180s and the 44t is from the rtr160...

          Sprockets are available individually in ASS too ,just like in spare shops.So they will give you whatever combination you ask for.

            ok... and what about the chain? r both rtr160 and 180 using the same chain?? in the morn the mech said that if i put the rtr setup, the power delivery becomes buttersmooth!! much more smoother than the stock F2...

              With the 14/44 set-up of the RTR you will have shorter gearing than 13/40.Which means there will be increase in Vibrations and acceleration.Then a decrease in top-end,engine life and mileage.

                dude u scared me man... Increase in vibes, decrease of Engine life etc etc...!!! So wat do u suggest me to do?? stick to the F2 setup, or the 14/44 setup??

                  Scared??no i was just telling that, whatever the mech has said can't be true Do one thing bro every 1 teeth of the front GB sprocket= 2.5 teeth of the rear sprocket.So in 14/44 ratio ,it'll make the gearing shorter minimally.But 14/46 will be too much.
                  That's why i asked you to give preference to the 15/44 set-up.The pulsar 180 has 14/39 set up and 200 or 220 have 15 front i think.So ask around at spare shops first,because the pulsars come with o-ring chains like the RTR's too.But importantly find out whether the new generation pulsar GB sprocket match that of the RTR.

                    • for the 14/44 setup, i will have to use the rtrs chain rite?? both rtr160 and 180 share the same chain??

                        Yes both share the same type of o-ring chain,but RTR180 chain will be longer as it has bigger sprockets and a longer swing-arm.

                          ok.. i have a questiom...
                          in my stock setup, my bike tops out at 105kmph at about 8k rpm. if i use the 14/44 setup, wat would be the max speed and at wat rpm??

                          I have done some calculations and just wanted to crosscheck whether i m rite or wrong...

                            it will be reduced to 102 kmph with 14/44 set-up

                            • Even a single tooth increase or decrease of the GB sprocket will make a huge difference in performance.The kinda change which you can feel without any instruments etc.Correspondingly a increase or decrease of 2.5/3 teeth of the rear sprocket has the same affect.
