If I could buy a lightweight steel rear 42 or 43 tooth sprocket I would probably do that. I want the full 6 or 8 % reduction in engine rpm. Don't particularly want to break the chain and deal with a master link. The thing I am most concerned with is removing the 16 tooth counter to go back to stock if I should want to. The Scrambler just feels like it's revving its guts out at 80 mph - even though I doubt it's hurting anything.Is it not more easy And less dangerous to change the rear sprocket by a 44 tooth.????
