So I picked up a new to me 09 YZ450f after years of riding the heavy Honda XR650 in the desert. I love the feel of the YZ but ran out of top end fairly quickly. The chain is in need of replacement as well as the rear sprocket so I thought I would drop a few teeth in the rear to see what I could get out of the top end. Any suggestions on what rear or counter sprocket to go to for desert riding? What your gearing for the desert?
