I ran into that same ''predicament'' a few years back when i wanted to run LHD
on an old flip-flop primo-pro hub. There arent any 9t freewheels available. It goes down to 11..
i think dk makes one?? Yeah so its a bitch pit that you just fell into. srry

Run what you can until you got enough money to get what you want.

look into the haro conversion kit....it comes with a 25t sprocket and a rear wheel with a 9t driver in it...i think it's actually somewhat affordable

yeah that's what i had to end up getting cause i was runnin a 36/14

but the bad thing to that is if you ride hard on it like i did, i bent the sprocket and the rim, i replaced the sprocket but now i have to buy a new rim,

DK only made a freewheel down to 12t but it was somewhat fragile, last I heard they stopped production of it.

The only way you will get 25/9 is with a new rear hub and a new chainwheel/sprocket. I would go with something like the haro conversion kit, its like 150-170 depending on where ya get it, but it will have everything you need. MAKE SURE you have a chain tool. You will need to shorten your chain, and be able to pull off your crank arm(s). If you want LHD you might not be able to get that kit, and may have to spend more money for the wheel.
