    My name is James and I'm from northen ky. I'm so new into this that I'm still waiting on my engine to come in the mail. I'd like to hear from some people though. What to expect, the ups and downs, Good cruises to go on around here, etc. Anything you have to say would nice. Later

    I'm a 220 pound guy. I have a schwinn searcher and ordered a 70cc kit and a 40 tooth sprocket, any idea how much MPG and top speed I should get?

    Hi I weigh 207 6'1 have currently have a 80cc(65cc) I just finished. 44 tooth. I only have 20 miles on it so I havent opened this one up yet. I am pulling at 25mph with guessing another 10 to go. But I keep it down to bicycle speeds so I dont draw to much attention. Ive built others that were capable of 50. Death ride.

    Welcome James.
    There are plenty of intelligent people in America, the only problem is itís the unintelligent people who run it.

    Is a 40 or 44 tooth sprocket better for top speed? Not too concerned with acceleration.

    G'day James & welcome to MBc.
    It's a good idea to READ as much as possible first then ask relevent questions later in the appropriate section...sorry man i know it's a hassle but you'll be much better off.

    40, the smaller the rear sprocket the better the top speed, the larger the sprocket, the better the acceleration, and more torque at the low end getting to the wheels.
