200t sprocket size

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Follwed this forum for donkeys, but first time posting.

 

Recently had my 200t pretty much rebuilt. Guy who carried out the work switched the sprocket from a 6 pin up to a 7, saying it would improve the performance of the saw. Will it?

Iv a 150 for all pruning works, so the 200t is 90% removals. I run a 14" bar for this reason, semi-chisel chain, saw is stock, no mods or porting.

 

Will the 7 pin improve its cutting through larger timber? Or am i better off switching it back?

I would say there’s more chance of it improving the saws performance on a 12” bar than a 14”, that’s the general rule of thumb though. Not actually tried in myself on a ms200

Got to agree, I reckon the 7 pin will rob the saw of torque on a 14" bar but may be faster on a 12" bar.

If you don't use the full bar length in the cut then it may work but my thinking is most climbers want a fast, non bogging precision cut and I would normally stick with a 6 pin.

I see. Think il switch it back then.

 

I know il need to fit a corresponding worm gear to match the sprocket, will i need to change anything else to do with the oiling system?
