got a gearing recommendation for a stocker?
man, i wouldn't even know for a stocker. I've only ever ridden the stock bike at Herrin's place (with stock gearing).
If it helps for a starting point, the gearing at Barber that seemed to run best on the built bike was 16/46.
Thanks, might have to hit you up. Conrad tried to "Broome" Dustin at Barber (his lines are a little, shall we say, creative?), we can go for a repeat.
You can see him pushing Dustin wide in the shot below, Lee got the entire series.
I know it's minis but I do need you to work with him on his lines.
oh, i saw that whole series already. that's what happens when Grom guys chase an XR around a track. children become endangered.
seriously, hit me up about the XR if you need it.
three bikes went by him pretty quickly in that one turn. I won't name names, but I've seen grown ass men get more spooked than Conrad did.
he might've also been impressed (and lost focus for a second) that a dirt bike, not that much different than the one he was on, was showin' the way around the track to a couple of Groms for a good part of the race.
is that enough yet? 'we tired of the smack talk?
so...you're saying 15/50 isn't gonna cut it.
Oh Conrad was fine on holding his line, no issues there at all. Just the creative lines part makes him not as consistent as he could be, something easily handled with a little instruction. Not a big deal at all.
We are, no joke.
I figured as much, really wasn't worried. Just never saw you after I was watching him last time (wow, can't even remember where) so while I was thinking about it I figured I'd say something.
15/50 doesn't even cut it at cmp on the kart track. Id go at least a 47 rear.
Thanks for reminding me to order some new gearing.
any time, Sally.
i'd go, like, 5 teeth up and 7 or so down, you decide which way to go on which sprockets. it's all good.
Hey Travis, good meeting you this weekend. How'd your gearing work for you on the stock bike?
You too man, I'm impressed with that machine of yours!
Went with 15/48 and did OK. got it down to a 30.9 on Sunday. Not sure I can go any taller with that motor...
