On eBay I see clutches listed with 20, 21, 22, and 23 teeth. Far less offers of 20 tooth clutches.

Have seen comments here and there about trading acceleration for top speed or vice versa by using a clutch gear with a different number of teeth.

What is the standard or factory default number of teeth for the clutch gear in the P200e?

How much can the gear be changed without also having to change the tree cluster?

23tooth clutch on the P200E or PX200E
using a P125(early) or T5 fourth (for later PXE) shortens the gearing slightly so will pull 4th better but you’ll loose a bit on topend

DRT make a 24 tooth cosa cog for the 65 tree. Gearing is then quite high, so without more power it's going to struggle.

How much would you want to change it? I'm fairly sure DRT make all sorts of different gearing options.
What is it you want to achieve?

P200 is 23/65 standard, have a look on scooterhelp at their gearing calculator for a guide. I'm currently looking for a 65t cog for my spare engine and struggling to find one second hand.
My preference for a tuned engine is 23/65 on a 125 box, but never tried the 67t cog in any combination so who knows what that's like

My BGM177 runs 23/68 using a DRT centre. It's a great set up but you need the HP to pull it, hence standard px125 being 21 tooth.
