    my former wera mini 150 has a 35t rear for big big tracks. your bike used to belong to rob linders, if you get in contact with him im sure he'd be full of info.

    I don't think that's Rob's old bike, unless he had 2. Kenny raced against that bike last year in WERA minis and it was an RS. It's the dark blue bike in this video, #117.

    Depending on the track, start with around a 15/36 and go from there. You should wind out top gear on the straight for a reasonable amount of time. If you don't hit top gear until the end of the straight, it's too tall. If you spend a long time in top gear before the end of the straight, it's not tall enough.

    but....i bought a dark blue #117 this spring.... :eek:

    got my facts mixed, rob was just hanging on to it before it got brought up north for you to buy steve-o. strato's longest straight is just under 1400ft if that lends a hand with calculations.
