40t rear sprocket

Hey guys, just picked up a 18’ van van. Love it except for the ridiculously low gearing. Called up sprocket specialist and put a 40 tooth on her. Worked great! Just thought I would share my experience

Did they just make a sprocket for you or was it from what they had on hand?

Yea, the gearing on the stock bike is crazy.
I went with a 43 tooth...I have just a tiny bit of rear wheel travel if the chain stretches.

I would rather up the front sprocket by 1 tooth than get a new chain at this point. Bike has just under 1,000 miles on her.
Sprocket specialists only have stock toothed sizes for the front. :/

I now some Russians use 17T front sprocket and glad for big cities and highways. There are a lot of sprockets on Aliexpress site, for ex. https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/520-1...436722562.html
But I think that the rear sprocket 40-42T from the normal manufacturer is the better with the same result.

ive just done a 42T rear sprocket and can say its worth doing.
No noticeable impact on its ability to get to top speed, no noticeable different in RPMs at 100kph though it will be slightly lower.
The main difference is you can actually use the gearbox now rather than changing all the way upto 5th everytime you accelerate, spreads the ratios out nicely.

Well with my Big butt coming in at 260...my bike will only get to 59 MPH on flat ground...
I have a steep driveway and in first gear it takes it alot to get going....I tried to switch to 2 nd gear and it just stopped going forward lol.
So what to you think I should do? I dont need top end as much as I would like to pull hills better...
