Stainless steel if possible, Titanium is softer than Steel.

+1 - definitely worth the investment, especially if you're going to use the kit provided screws.

Thanks
The way you can figure that out is calculate your fdr on your 48p set and then do some calculations with 64p numbers until you hit the same fdr give or take.

Since the '12 is so underweight as it is (I had to add 44 grams to get it to 1382) there's no reason to use anything other than good black oxide grade 10.9 steel screws. Stainless steel screws are way softer than the kit screws. As hanulec said above, either McMaster.com, or tonysscrews.com.

McMaster only sells in bulk (usually minimum of 100, but occasionally 50 piece bags). Tonysscrews sells in smaller count bags, but are a little more expensive. McMaster is way cheaper per piece. They don't carry some oddball sizes, like 3x14 button head, but common sizes are quite inexpensive. McMaster ships super quick (usually same day).

To calculate the equivalent number of teeth in a 64 Pitch gear to 48 Pitch or vice versa, simply divide the number of teeth by its pitch then multiply by the target pitch to obtain the equivalent number of teeth.

Example: 108 Tooth 64 Pitch Spur = 81 Tooth 48 Pitch Spur.
108/64 x 48 = 81

Pardon my ignorance. This will give you the same size spur... Not the same FDR if the pinion stays constant... Or am I wrong??

No mate it's not. Stainless steel has a very low iron content, hence why it is then stainless, which is what makes steel hard in the first place.

Titanium is much much harder than anything out there in terms of screws, etc.

You do the same to the pinion, as you need to change pinion anyway.

I'm pretty certain in the '11 model they are steel - they are magnetic anyway Not sure about the '12 but can see them changing?
