**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..
