Default FM-1e Gearing? Mod 1?

I'm trying to change the gearing on my FM-1e motorcycle, but it does not use 48p or 32p gears. I think it needs a mod 1.0 pinion. Where can I find these with a standard (1/8) center hole? I am using it on a 540 brushless motor, but all the mod 1 pinions seem to have a 5mm hole..?

are you sure they aren't 32P?... I've been racing RC motorcycles for 10 years now, and though I've switched to 48P gears... I would almost swear they stock ones are 32P.... go to http://www.rcgroups.com/motorcycles-183/ and see if you can pull up a better answer

I think Akura's right, my TT had a 32P spur as well.
