Whether you are using a pit bike, quad bike or mini moto, changing the number of teeth on your sprockets can have a significant effect on the bike's performance. This is called gearing.

 

Adjusting the gearing on your pit bike, quad or mini moto is one of the most popular and cost effective ways of getting quickly improved or adjusted performance.

 

Drive sprockets are also referred to as being 'front' sprockets. Driven sprockets are also referred to as 'rear' or 'wheel' sprockets.

Here are the rules of gearing: 


Increase the number of teeth on the DRIVE sprocket and you will increase the top speed but reduce the acceleration.

Decrease the number of teeth on the DRIVE sprocket and you will increase the acceleration but decrease the top speed.

Increase the number of teeth on the DRIVEN sprocket and you will increase the acceleration but decrease the top speed.

Decrease the number of teeth on the DRIVEN sprocket and you will increase the top speed but decrease the acceleration.
