So if I make the rear sprocket smaller I will be able to go the same speed, but at lower rpms? So instead of say my 4th gear being good for 35mph to 50 mph it would shift to maybe 45 mph to 60 mph? Just trying to get a feel for this. How difficult was it to get used to and how hard is it to change to a smaller sprocket? Do I need to change anything else, or just the chain tension? (smaller sprocket would equal more slack in chain)
Goal one= 30mpg on The Monte by changing the nut that connects the steering wheel to the seat.
