Does more teeth on a sprocket mean?
Adding teeth to the front and rear sprockets have opposite effects. Installing a larger countershaft sprocket creates higher gearing, while a larger rear sprocket lowers gearing. For taller gearing, a one-tooth-larger countershaft sprocket is often the best bet.
Is more teeth on a sprocket better?
Gearing up adds more speed and decreases the final drive ratio. You can gear down by using a larger rear sprocket or a smaller front sprocket. For every 1 tooth that you change on the front sprocket is like changing 3 to 4 teeth on the rear (and that’s true for higher gearing ratios, too).
What is a wheel with teeth called?
A sprocket, sprocket-wheel or chainwheel is a profiled wheel with teeth, or cogs, that mesh with a chain, track or other perforated or indented material. The name ‘sprocket’ applies generally to any wheel upon which radial projections engage a chain passing over it.
What is the best sprocket for BMX?

How can I make my BMX sprocket faster?
What size sprocket do I need BMX?
Old BMX bikes were equipped with 48T (teeth) sprockets, however this is not a standard nowadays. Most common sprocket size today is 25T or 28T with 23,7mm bore. There are two basic sprocket types ” bolt drive and spline drive. Bolt drive sprocket is attached to the crank arm with the bolt.
Many BMX bikes use a U-style rear brake mounted to the top of the frame chain stay. With this style of brake mount, a very small sprocket and rear cog will lower the chain so much it contacts the top of the brake and inhibits pedaling. Typically the smallest gear combination a bike of this style will allow is a 36/13.
Is a smaller sprocket faster?
Substituting a larger front or smaller rear sprocket lowers the ratio (sometimes called “taller” gearing), resulting in more speed for a given engine rpm. Likewise, a smaller front or larger rear sprocket gives less speed for a given rpm (“shorter” gearing).
How can a sprocket increase top speed?
To increase low end power, you should increase size of rear sprocket or decrease size of front sprocket. To increase top speed, you should reduce size of rear sprocket or increase size of front sprocket.
How can I reduce my sprocket speed?
Gearing down by installing a larger rear sprocket (like with our YZ example) increases the final drive ratio and reduces top speed, but can increase acceleration. Gearing up, like with a smaller rear sprocket, decreases the final drive ratio and adds more top speed to your motorcycle or ATV.
How do I know what size sprocket I need?
To measure the chain size, if you have just the sprocket, use calipers to measure between the teeth. Measure from center to center of where the chain roller would set between the teeth that will give you the pitch. Once you know the pitch you can determine what chain size you would need.
Will 40 chain fit 420 sprocket?
They are the same pitch (1/2″) but 420 is narrower used primarily on the thin, lightweight kart sprockets. 40 chain will run on a 420 sprocket but I think it will have way too much side to side play.
How big is a 60 tooth sprocket?
Our 60 roller chain sprockets are manufactured in accordance with ANSI B29 standards meaning that they directly interchange with other manufactures….#60 A-Plate Sprockets.
What is a 520 chain?
* Performing a 520 conversion is a way to use a lighter chain on a bike equipped with a heavier stock chain. * The lighter chain reduces bike weight and allows for more efficient power generation by the motor. * Replacing the chain along with the sprockets is the best way to maximize the gains of a 520 conversion.
What’s the difference between 520 and 525 chains?
The 5 part just describes the distance between the centers of the link pins (or wherever on the links, basically how long a link is) and the next two numbers describe the width of the chain. So a 520 chain is going to be narrower than a 525(and thus require a narrower front and rear sprocket) and lighter…
W/O racing you should be good for a safe 10k miles. 15-20 is a bit rare, but doable. Yes it will handle much more then a stock 1000 or 1000 w/ simple bolt ons could ever throw at it. Driven Racing has put 195rwhp bikes on a 520 set up without any problems at all.
What’s the difference between a 520 and 530 chain?
The difference is width. 530 sprockets are 3/8″ wide, 520 are 1/4″ wide. 530 chains and sprockets are stronger because they’re thicker, but they’re also heavier.
What is Z ring chain?
Z-ring section provides enhanced chain flexibility. Lubricant trapped between plates and lobes of Z-ring keeps the ring lubricated and increases its life. High alloy steel plates and pins. Solid bushing and rollers, shot-peened plates. Pre-stretched chain that is plated gold.
How do you tell if I have a 520 chain?
ricksca wrote: There is nothing written on the chain. Even the cheapest no-name chain has the pitch stamped into the side plates. If you have a 49T rear sprocket you almost certainly have 520. sikhed wrote: Easiest way to tell is to use a set of calipers and measure the inner roller.
