I know this is very rough, but on my 417X, I can't get anything less than around 99 teeth (spur+pinion) of 48 pitch to mesh - the motor mount won't allow the motor to get close enough to the centre pulley. The equivalent in 64 pitch would be around 132 teeth. The basic idea here is that the circumferences of each circle (ie: teeth) determine radius and hence the distance between the axles of the motor and centre pulley.

In your example, the 80/40 wouldn't mesh and the 90/45 would, but you wouldn't have a lot of room to gear shorter without swapping the spur again.

Of course, if I've got this wrong, someone please let me know

As a matter of interest, does anyone know the maximum number of teeth you can get in?
