    Gearing and tires in general question

    its been a long time since i have played with my 3.3 and i have forgotten just about everything. could someone please explain how gearing works in detail, high and low tooth count effects, large and small tires on each and how it affects the engine performance and life.
    Much apreciated

    You are riding a bike: the pedals are connected to the clutch bell and the tires are connected to the spur gear. Switch gears and what happens? Switch tire size and what happens?
