I am looking for a 8- 36 T for my Diamond Back Recoil mountain bike(has a 1200 W Cyclone kit) that I want to have more lower end for the hills in the dirt. I changed the small sprocket from 24 to 20 in the front. I have looked on the internet, but haven't found one yet. Any suggestions?

Well... I thought I really had to fudge my 7 speed.... It all depends on the spread distance (or whatever they call it, measure it from the inside) of the forks and all the gear near it....
You could always allow it to draw more amps = torque...
My kit is pretty wide, so I had to use a spacer: http://www.ebikes.ca/store/photos/SpaceWasher14.jpg
I suspect it *might* be possible http://www.ebikes.ca/store/photos/FW9Spd1132.jpg

I bet ya gotta get a new chain, chain dimensions become important at that level...
