Yes you were mentioned examples of during our correct....Forgive me for the dumb questions to follow...I'm still learning.
When we say "gear down", are we talking actually increasing the ratio.. for example, going from a 2.33:1 to a 2.53:1? This then by theory would create less load on the engine/clutches, & lower top speed, correct?
So, "gearing up" would be going from, say a 2.53:1 to 2.33:1, thereby increasing the load on the engine and increasing the top speed?
Am I following this correctly? Would it be ideal to gear up as high as possible while still maintaining the proper power curve? My thought behind it is, if the track is spinning, you might as well spin it as fast as you can (mountain riding).
When I say most are geared to low....... I mean that in a way that properly loads the turbo hard enough.
But there is an exact contradiction to what I mentioned when I say ( most ) gearing also has a lot to do with writing ability.
Example....... And please don’t take this out of context or let it go to your head
If you’re not very experienced rider...
If you’re fairly tall and/or really strong ( both is good )and can really manhandle the sled and jerk it around.....
Then the stock gearing is to low ( especially for climbing )
Boondocking only and low to mid experience then low gears not a big deal.... easier on belts.
We have been finding the guys that ride a lot like taller gears and more helix like
Our turbo 3 or our Turbo Extreme
