high speed gear upgrade

Post by Lancer »

    Hello all I was wondering if there was a way to upgrade or convert a Citica 201E to the higher gear ratio like on the E 7 Curado series?? I'm looking to get more speed out of my reels.

    Thank you for your help

    Yes you can. Contact shimano and tell them what you want to do. Its easy to switch out yourself. I don't know the part numbers, but shimano does! I did this on a citica E a few years back.

    You can post your question on TT. Those guys are all about upgrading Shimano.

    It's not a problem as long as parts are available. The switch necessitates a new main gear, pinion gear, drag washer, and pressure Plate if you want it done correctly cost with parts runs around $45-$50. Dan
