I ran the stock gearing on my 03 for a while but went up to a 51 this year on the rear when I couldn't find a 50 in the sprocket I wanted. It did take a bit off the top speed in the desert but the improvement in the mountains was noticeable. It's hard to say why such a small change made such a big difference for me, but it did. It allowed me to use low RPM 2nd gear in places where I was previously stuck in 1st with high RPMs.
