Cota 242 Gearing

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My 242 is nearly finished and I was wondering what the best gearing is?

It's the early version with the low primary gearing so when new would have 10 front and 38 back sprockets, when I got it it was 9 - 38 but I only rode it for a few minutes.

I would rather not have a 9 on the front so maybe 10-40 or 42?

Anyone out there with recommendations.

Ian

Can I have a picture of your kick starter. Mine seems to be fouling the brake and poping out of the casing. I think the peddle should perhaps be cranked out sideways perhaps, maybe mine is off another bike - or maybe I'm a worse mechanic than even I think!

Regards.

Do you want the parts diagram robkeyzor? few shims internally that can affect, and lead to spring jumping...can PM you it or link on here.

 

Cheers,

Hi ikb, are you still riding the 242? What gearing did you settle on? My own has the standard 10/38 but feel it's too high for modern twinshock trials.
