15 tooth front sprocket (a must!)



Hey there, just wanted to pass along my experience, as it was really really good! Thanks to Jamie Mace, I tried out the 15 tooth front sprocket on my 700 with the mods below. WOW what a difference. Before I would spin 1st-3rd and not really feel much pull. then I would hit 4th and 5th and it would pull like a freight train. I knew it was a lot faster than stock, but wasnt pleased with what was happening in the lower gears as it was spinning all the extra power away.....even with my ITP holeshot XCR's!
NOW the thing pulls like a freight train everywhere. I cant believe how fast it is. Its "stupid fast"! With stock gearing I was able to hit the rev limiter in 5th at WOT on a slight down hill grade, meaning I hit full gearing potential at 95mph! Now its even faster! my 4th gear feels almost as fast as my "old" 5th gear! Gearing potential is up to 101.84mph, but I doubt i will have the power to pull that, as like i said, it took a slight downhill to hit 95mph before. In a drag race it helps out A LOT, as the power is getting to the ground. Topspeed is nuts. Wheelies are insane. I can wheelie 1st-4th with out a problem. I ride 3rd gear till the rev limit, and ride 4th gear wheelies standing up at probably 80+mph! Its insane.
Do yourself a favor and dont gear down to a 13 tooth or anything like that. All it does is spin your power away, or wheelie all the time. that and your always shifting. If you mess with your gearing go up. The easiest change is the 15 tooth. Bolts up in 5 minutes. You'll need a 36mm socket though, and most likely a impact wrench. Then you'll have to adjust your chain (which by the way is extremely easy now too with the new cam design swinger)

Re: 15 tooth front sprocket (a must!)

Its extremely important to use the power the quad produces in the low-mid range. By gearing it up it stays in this range longer. It pulls gears twice as long. Doesnt feel like you have to short shift all the time.


oh....by the way.....unplug your speed limiter if you want to achieve those speeds I am talking about. Makes a bige difference in 5th!

I agree - i felt my bike pulled better with 15/36 than stock gearing ..the engine wants some load to work against..my next step is to put my 16 front sprocket on and see what happens...
If comparing gearing 700 vs 660 the 700r is lower geared especially in 1st-3rd than old 660 .. if you put a 2 tooth bigger front sprocket on your 700 then you have about the same total gearing as the old 660 in 1st-3rd ..

I got my 15 from Rocky Mountain ATV for 6.95 With the 15 tooth front I don't need to unhook my speed sensor, it just flat hauls ass the way it is 2nd gear launches with 22 x 11 x 8 8 paddle Haulers and the + 4'' swingarm are a gas, it wheelies like it did with the stock swinger

I have had the 15 since the day it became ava at Rocky Mountain. I have a 13 as well that will never get used.

Hey man, I was hoping you would see this thread. Thank you very much for pointing me in this direction! the quad is an absolute rocket! I can not believe how fast it is. You know how I was saying that my 700 still didnt "feel" as fast as my previous modded yfz, but in reality I could kick its a$$ in drag races......welllllll, thats right out the window. The 700 actually "feels" faster now, and I cant wait to line up against my buddy with a modded yfz. Previously when we raced I was walking. We raced second gear starts, and were equal for about 15 feet....as soon as I hit 3rd (1st shift) it was all over. NOW with the power actually hitting the ground in the lower gears I am anticipating a real butt whoopin.

I am soooo excited.....makes me wonder if I should mess with the gearing some more. I dont want it too tall......but.....

Once modded these things have enough bottom end that you don't really feel any loss with a 15 they just flat pull hard from start to finish

Re: 15 tooth front sprocket (a must!)

135boom,
you can get the front end up in 4th gear and ride a wheelie at 80mph?
Dude thats insane! i dont even hit 80mph till i get into 5th gear and by that time it just head down on the tank, i cant immagine being i n a wheelie at that speed.
i dont think my front end will even come up once i get over like 35mph.
is something wrong with my bike?
I allways felt like it was kind of rich, maby ill lean it a little and see if i can get the front up at speed.
The 15 tooth is awsome. 1-3rd pull way longer, much less shifting.
