    The only factory sprocket was a 65 tooth overlay using the stock drum and sprocket for attachment. The engine and gearbox sprockets were used to change things up and down. Engine sprockets came from 17-34 tooth and gearbox in 15-17. Most hillclimbers had low gear blanked off.

    How fast do you expect to go?
    In what gear?
    What's in the engine?

    Thanks Robbie, not sure of grade or length of hill yet, but dont think its going to be anything too radical so im just looking for a start point will look at getting a 65 tooth made, I have seen pics of hill climber sprockets that overlay on the stock drum/sprocket with 6 or so bolts but cant seem to find these pic's now

    Hey Panic
    answers 1: as fast as neccessary
    2: not sure, as I don't know the incline or length yet
    3: old WL engine ex flat tracker from over your way, not sure whats been done inside, have raced it a few times on a sand drag race event got along pretty smartly for a 750.

    cheers
