36-1 vs 36-2 how critical is it?


Recommended Posts

G4X is pretty robust with gap detection on any generic missing tooth pattern as it also performs a gap validation test on the teeth following the gap.

An example of a case where a "-2" might be preferred or possibly necessary over a "-1" would be something like a modern 4 stroke motorcross engine - being a single cylinder, very low rotating inertia, high compression, and with a weak/light weight starter and battery system, so the cranking speed can be highly variable.  I have seen them go from ~400RPM to 40RPM in the space of just 3 or 4 teeth.   If the gap wasnt ideally placed so the crank suddenly slowed down just a few teeth before the gap approaches the sensor then it could be difficult to identify the gap.
