There is usually only enough room to go up one tooth on the countershaft sprocket before the chain starts hitting valuable motor or frame parts.

To make the front sprocket turn one turn, for every one turn of the rear wheel, you'd have to have the same size sprockets on both, thus... a 1:1 ratio.

If you change your ratio very much you will get to the point that it starts to lug the engine down every time you start off from a standstill. It's like taking off in 2nd gear every time and you'll end up having to ride the clutch. That's going to wear your clutch out really fast so don't make drastic changes.

What are you trying to accomplish by changing the sprockets?
