Juggernaut tested. Results are in. Same gear as before 50-9. Top speed...same. 53mph. However, the driver was NOT fully open nor was driven fully closed. So it wants more gear/power.

Rpms...previously 6000 max with driver fully open. New rpms...7500...valve float with 22lb springs. No lugging. No bogging. No fighting the tq converter. Just acceleration all the way. I just put 50/8 on and will see if speed increases via forcing driver closed more.

Can also test 6” driven if necessary.

This thing is the real deal for big power big tire bikes. Engagement as advertised at 2500rpms. Basically can use it as dual duty trail/track bike.

I’m impressed. Very impressed. Will update data after 50-8 testing.

Tested 50/8 w 7” 50/8 with 6” 2nd and third hole. Results for top speed same. 53mph. I need more power or a downward slope to go faster. Acceleration with all
Combos is perfect. 50-9 with 7” will be what I settle on

Scratch that. Did one final test. 50-10. The bike liked it. Same test road as before except I had to stop early for a pedestrian. 55mph and still accelerating when I had to brake. 50-10 is my final gearing. I’m done
