    As the Scrambler gearing is quite low, has anybody changed the gearing and what parts did they use?

    Mine will do over 90 mph on stock tyres and then its getting a bit vague in the steering.
    You can get a smaller rear sprocket I expect, but it will run at 70-80 on the motorway which is good enough for me.

    It was not so much the top speed I was concerned with but that the first two gears seem quite low and not very uaeable. There is a 40 tooth rear sprocket that I am going to try.

    orangeharley Did you try the 40 tooth rear sprocket? How did it perform?

    Hello vseye,
    Yes I did try the 40 tooth rear sprocket and it was an improvement both with lowering the revs at the top end and making it easier with the slow speed gearing. I would even have gone for a 38 or 39 tooth rear sprocket, but was advised against it on the Scrambler, by CCM. It could be because of the angle of the swinging arm/wheel tyre size, as I know people have gone to a 38 tooth on their Bobbers.

    Re gearing you may be able to change the front from presumably 15 (mine is 15/43 soon to be 15/40) to 16.
