Hi guys, i decided to replace my rear sprocket since i ride most of the time on highways, and get that speedometer accurate... I'm really not decided whether a 43t or 44t even though i have done some extensive research with the search function on the forum. I know most of the people go with the 44t but i read somewhere that it "only" drops the rpms around 200-300. Not much to me?! And i'm affraid to have some diffculties to start in first or loose to much power on 6th gear with the 43t. I have done a +1t front sprocket(worth 3t on the rear) on my stock Yamaha Raptor 700 atv and saw big difference. So much that the last gear(5th) was acting like an overdrive. I almost had no acceleration. But that was before any mods i have done to it. Now it is fine because i have more power for that gear setup.
So my questions are: i would like to install a JT because of the low price but i think they only make a 43t for the V right?
Any parts number for a 44t and lowest price(best place to order it).
Thank you very much for your replies!
I actually run a 42T rear. It does not make my speedo more accurate. In fact I am running at least 1-3 mph faster than the speedo shows depending on how fast I am going. However, the drop in RPMs with a 42T rear is significant. I am running about 2000 rpm below my speed at 70+. This makes for a more relaxed engine at any speed. It does hamper off road though as you'll need to slip the clutch significantly in more difficult sections. For this reason, I carry a front sproket with me in order to change it out. Would be kinda tough to carry a rear sprocket with you. It's also very tough to get that rear wheel into the air without a rear stand. I bought a JT Rear Steel Sprocket 42 Tooth - 1263590069 - $31.99 at the time I bought it from Rocky Mountain ATV.
