    I have not had the chance to run the Bandimere track.

    Any suggestions on gear ratio for a built Honda 125? I was thinking of starting at a 1.56 and adjusting from their.

    Thanks for the help!

    What did you run at Greeley?

    I ran a 1.50 at Greeley.

    Yeah, good question. Since we’re racing the opposite way that Test & Tune runs, is the gear ratio the same? Ive never run it counter clockwise….

    First off, Bandi has only run backwards (clockwise) for a CSC race one time. The normal direction is Counter Clockwise so nothing new there. As far as gearing on a built Honda CR-125, you should be somewhere around 1.65 or so. Hope this helps.

    Would it make since to run the same gearing as Centennial. At least a good place to start???

    Craig,

    A 1.50 seems a little high for the GGP, Did you chose not to run 6th gear? We ended up between a 1.75 & 1.85 @ Greeley. You more than likely want to run a little higher gear at Bandimere.

    The same applies to your post for information on gearing at Greeley. It’s a trial and error. Have someone watch you when your on track and note where the fastest racers are shifting compared to you, this might help you chose.

    Rick,
    I was only running a 5 speed. I was short on sprockets and had to make do. My gearing was off at the GGP and it cost me 1 sec each lap, I do not want that to happen again!
