I have a guy here in Peterborough that does my rear gear work. There is definately a talent to getting them set up properly. Polito Ford in Lindsay did my 2003 twice under warranty and still couldn't get it right. So a nice white lab coat with a Blue Oval on it is no guarantee.

BTW, I dont know what you were referring to about re-gearing (going up or down in ratio) but I have a brand nnew set of 3.73 Crown & Pinion gears from Ford for the front which I ended up not needing available for sale cheap if that helps.

I want to go bigger tires but not big enough to need to re-gear and the expense of doing the front is huge compared to the rear alot more labour intensive, plus its a daily driver.

mainly its to help with traction on a wet road taking off from a stop sign i get onewheel peel and in the winter its worse lots of torque no traction.

thanks for the offer on the gears thats whats in it now so no point in switching them out lol





true trac eh... will look into them
