Standard number is 48. I fitted a 45 tooth sprocket to mine to give slightly higher top speed and it also allows me to do 40 in 2nd. I found with the standard sprocket at 30 round town top gear caused the engine to labour and 2nd was too revvy. The 45 tooth sprocket means town work in 2nd is perfect.

Steve.

EDIT: New sprocket fitted was actually 46 teeth.
