    This isnt exactly a GT5 question :)

    Perhaps ask in Off Topic? :)

    We have many, many, many forums on this site, not just GT5 Q&A. This has been moved - and retitled - accordingly.

    Look before posting in future.

    Edit: No, that doesn't mean "make exactly the same thread again".

    You have to install an aftermarket sprocket/chain.

    Yep...Most simple solution.
    The bigger the sprocket at the back, the shorter the gears and top speed.

    Replace the rear sprocket with one that has more teeth. It will increase torque but reduce top speed.
    You can also do the same by using a sprocket with less teeth on the front sprocket.
    Front is less expensive, drop 1 tooth on the front and see. Drop more then that and you start getting into a chain binding.
