Hey everyone. I’m pretty new; got an older leopard engine and when I put it on my kart yesterday I realized that the rear sprocket I have is a different chain pitch than the front gear. Then I saw the front gear is worn pretty well so I figure a chain and sprocket set is in order.
I plan to run here in Washington, probably more auto-X and shorter courses. What would be a good setup for front and rear? And what would be good for more top end as well? And lastly where can I get one for a good price? I usually order from comet.
Drew, it varies with skill and weight, but a 10/83 will work at PSGKA, Richland, SIMA and PGP (if they ever let 2-strokes back). You might wind up running up one or down one or two in the long run, but this is a good start point.
As fate would have it, I have an extra used Leopard 10-tooth clutch drum and sprocket and an extra 83-tooth axle sprocket left over from when I used to run a Leopard. I’m in Seattle. PM me if you want to discuss a purchase.
