BTW a 44T sprocket will not be anywhere NEAR digging into the yard with 13 inchers. I run 13s ATM, and I have good ground clearance with a 66T #35 pitch.

It will also need a throttle cable, which I think is about $15 or so. A Chinese...

Try a bigger axle sprocket. I'm guessing a 44T or so should do you good. Maybe bigger.

Ohhhh, you mean Dennis? The guy in the "Factory Test Drive" video? Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if he moves a lot of karts through.
He's a real nice guy, got to meet him once at Pate Swap Meet.

The official rod cap torque spec is 100 in/lbs, so 8 ft/lbs is just about right.

Also, the ball bearing requires an arbor press to remove, and the bearing has to be heat-fitted.

Try a 12 tooth, they're pretty common. With a 12/72 setup, you should have gobs of torque!

Kudos to keeping those Raptors alive! They're a slowly dying breed unfortunately.
