    Climb like a Goat

    What is the largest rear sprocket you have ever used on your tw200. Looking for a real slow speed and a lot of torque. I want to climb like a goat... Any suggestions?...

    I have a 65 tooth that came with a couple TWs I bought. I mounted it up to a wheel but I have been to lazy to try it out.
    If I’m ever on LIFE SUPPORT, UNPLUG ME. Then plug me back in... See if that works. Hidden Content

    I've run 14-65. A couple of folks on here have run a 70 or 75.

    And you can put a 13 on the front. With stock gearing; a one tooth change on the front equals approx 3 teeth on the back.
    With large rear sprockets like the 65; a one tooth change on the front is equal to five on the back.

    The mountain goatiest gearing combo I remember reading about someone using on here was 12-72. Check out the gearing commander sites for the % of change, a couple are stickies somewhere...maybe in the Tech Write-up section.

    The lowest gearing that I have run is a 66 on the rear and a 13 on the front with my triple/double sprocket setup. I could still do about 45mph on the road.

    Third grade math - the easy motorcycle sprocket and chain calculator.
    Your old math teacher would be disappointed if you couldn’t remember how to do all these calculations with pen and paper.

    Captain, I have 2 Tw's set up with 12/55. They are Mountain Goats for sure.
    I now most of the time start out in second gear unless I'm on a up hill. That makes first gear like a granny gear.
    Top cruising speed is probably about 35 mph. But they will go 45 mph if needed.
    I did not have to change or bend anything everything fit great,
    I did buy new chains when I bought my Sprockets.

    I run the stock front and a 72 rear from Sprocket Spec. I'm 6'4 and 220. I use the bike mainly for hunting and technical single track here in Utah and Idaho. For slow steep mountain single track riding you can't do any better in my opinion. I also have a TW with stock front and 60 rear but when the going gets technical and steep above 9K feet the 72 rear is my go to bike....
