I would like just slightly taller gearing for less buzz at 75 mph.
I'm thinking I can solve both issues.
Speedometer accuracy isn't crucial, but why not see what sprocket...
So, I'm hoping someone who knows more technical details can help with this, or we can all cross-reference and chime in!

• 1. Primary Drive Ratio
• 2. Tire Size [Width , % , Rim]
• 3. M.P.RPM
• 4. Final Drive Ratio [Front/Rear]
• 5. Chain or Belt Pitch...
