**shaft**is 1.86 regardless of the drivers right?? So I guess I'm confused about where the change takes place and how it is calculated.

If someone can please explain this to me, I would appreciate it.

Thanks

If a 22/41 is 1.86 on a 9 tooth, that is calulated by dividing the 41 by the 22, correct? There is no other conversion factor, so why is a 22/41 on a 10 tooth 1.68?? What is the conversion factor and why is it not used when calulating ratio on a 9 tooth driver??

The "gear ratio does not change"

The whole drive ratio does change..

With the 10 tooth driver its like adding taller tires to a truck....yet the gear ratio did not change..

So it will by my calculations change the "whole ratio" by 10/9ths...or 1.111

so if your ratio of 22-41 before was .536 on a std sled----now it is equal to a .595......ratio

I hope this is right and makes sense..

The only thing I don't get is the 10/9ths deal. I mean you can't just use 10 and 9 because that may not be the difference in ratio between the drivers actual diameters??

BOBCAT,

Thank you. So the ratio IS based on the diameter of the driver, makes sense to me now.
