I wouldn`t use one, even so they offer dead on the money timing compared to a chain, gears can be noisy, and they can carry harmonics to the valvetrain. and if one of the gears decides it wants to break they`ll jam or cause a lot of carnage. there not really needed on a street machine, I would only run one if I was running in a high dollar serious racing class.
