    front sprocket tooth count

    Tore into the 350 x today and got to replacing the front sprocket and the one I got seems not to fit and I don't want to jam it on there so looking at buying another as they are cheap. I notice there are 12, 13 ,14 tooth counts available, why and whats the better choice?

    Thanks

    This is for changing the gearing. The 12 tooth will give you more low end torque (as if a 350X needs that), and better acceleration, but less top speed. The 14 tooth will give you more top speed while losing some acceleration and low end torque. It's kind of like riding in first gear only compared to riding in second gear only.

    Like he said it all depends on what riding you do and what size rear tire you plan on running
    If its on the internet its got to be true they can't put any lie's on the internet

    Nice thig is the sprockets are cheap and easy to change may need to get one of each over time.

    thanks for the feedback.
