As per Ben's suggestion I run 22/78 on mine with a 6.5. If you need more on the low end go down 1. The motor will still run cool. I'm pulling wheelies on the straight now with a 22. It depends on your track and where you want the punch.

Yeah, 21-22 with the 78 Spur should be good.

What about with an Orion 6.5? Same or down a tooth since they seem to have slightly less torque and a bit more RPM?
