Where can I find the 9T pinion for the Shogun? Just ordered the heli from Heliproz, and they now have an 8T pinion in the brushless combo deal. I've read here that the 9T is the ticket.
So, where can I find one in stock? Anyone have a new one they would like to part with?
What if any side effect would I see running the 8T pinion?

If it's a 4200 kv motor, then the 8t is just nice for it.
9t will give u higher headspeeds at a higher amp draw but it will bog more significantly in full collective climbs. u can have a faster forward flight top speed, but then micros get small real quick so don't try too hard.

Darn, Vinnie only has 2.3 bore pinions. Anyone else know where I can get a 2.0 bore, 9mm long, 9T pinion?

They have the best pinions. The gear mesh is better than the others I've tried.

Edit: Oops.. just noticed they are out of stock on the 9T Sorry

Steve,
Like 90 are the best, but everyone is out of stock on the 9T pinions with the 2mm shaft including Like 90. I just got one sent (hasn't arrived yet) from Modefo's...I don't know if they are like 90's. Go to 2mm Pinions

you'll be just fine with 8t. You do not need 9t. I haven't tried 9t but they say, your lipo will run hotter with 9t.

if it is 4200 motor, you don't need 9t. It will give you insane headspeed.
I believe heliproz sells Like90 pinions. That's the one I have and they mesh good. I bought 8t and 9t but am happy with 8t. You do the same 9t is not a ticket for 4200 motor.

On my 400DH I use a 8T and it has so much power and doesn't break a sweat. Only gets alittle warm afer a full run. Head speed is very good.
I only need up to 85% throttle max . 90% and over is overkill!!

The Helihobby Pinions are terrible, you will ruin main gear and tail input gear with thier pinion.

The Like90 pinions are the absolute best you can buy. They use the correct tooth pitch. Just remember to use 680 loctite green stuff to hold pinion on.

I agree. I tried one from HeliHobby and it was terrible. The like 90's are the only way to go.

I just tried to replace a 10 tooth pinion with a 2.3 bore 8 tooth pinion purchased from HeliHobby. It was so loose it almost fell off when I turned the motor up side down. I called HeliHobby and was told by Casey at HeliHobby to just put some “Lock-tite” on it. Hmmmmmm….
Well I don’t think so. I’m going to return it. They said they would refund the price of the pinion and the shipping. I’ll see what they do and let you guys know what happens.

My Like 90 8T pinion was not "tight" at all on my HiMax motor. It was rather loose. The green loctite is the ticket. No problems at all once it's cured.

4 kinds of pinions
i just learned there are differences in pinions.

there is the old "press fit" that most of us are used to. you might have to use a vice to install the pinion so it could be difficult to install or remove.

then there is the newer "glue fit" style. it requires the use of locktite 680 for proper retention. but it is much easier to install, not much chance of damaging the motor shaft or bearings. and of course, much easier to remove.

there is also two types of "teeth" "0.5 mod" or "48". if you have try to use the incorrect type of teeth your gears or your gears are probably not meshing properly. even skipping gears i.e. noisey and non efficient. and always stripping gears. does that sound familiar.

my apologies to the folks at heli-hobby !! they sent me a newer style pinion.

"ignorance is bliss"
