question about your tranny gears. Did you swap all of them or just some of the gear sets? Also I was wondering about flywheel wieghts for my yzf. I ride desert and woods. I'm thinking 8 oz so i'll still have that yzf spap and lugging capability. what do ya think?

I am changing first second and fifth. third
and fourth are almost the same in either wr
or yz. I have yet to install flywheel weight
will be using 10 or 12oz. We ride some rather
tight woods here in northern Minnesota.
I will be selling yz gears if ya know anyone
who could use them!
