............ Not sure what if any logic was used in that decision just like the no kicker, seems rather stupid to me to build a chain drive bike and no option for taller gearing, maybe they thought they would never leave India. We in America and Europe need taller gearing!
Maybe we'll see a belt drive kit someday, that might offer gearing changes.
I know of no other chain drive bike Including the 2 Brits i own that you can not alter the gearing.
There are often limits high and low to what you can do to the front sprocket due to space. On the rear, I don't know if there's a space issue but the sprocket is specially made to mate up to a hub. You can take the rear wheel completely out of the bike and the sprocket stays behind. This leads me to believe that it's not a stock part that fits anything else. If you wanted to get some machining done I'm sure you could adapt another sprocket to the rear end of an Enfield but it seems at least for now that no one offers them off the shelf.Scott
Eh,, CMW sells an aftermarket rear sprocket that you can put different counts on. Thinking its roughly $200. I am at work so I don't know if it fits the new UCE bikes but I imagine it will. They need to make a pocket catalog so we can quick reference these things, weather that part has a diamond and spade next to it or not...
So when the original rear sprocket wears do you just replace the entire hub?Scott
So a little thread jacking here now that my curiosity is piqued...1) How often do you need to change the rear sprocket/drum because the sprocket wore out? How expensive is the part? 2) On the new UCE bikes can you still remove the rear wheel and tire without taking off the chain?Scott
