The sprocket information is inaccurate: two-speed SSXLS Came with a 52 rear, but not two-speed VIPs - the internal gearing of the engine was a bit different than an NOI. I believe the rear on my two speed vip is closer to 36 or 38. The Gulp, the precursor to the VIP came with 16” wheels. The VIPs, to my knowledge, all had 17s.
