This is probably an age old question but I'm a newbie to the forum. What setup is everyone running on their bikes?

I think mine is standard. It's an 05 450. I ride mainly English green lanes which are mostly twist's n turns.

I was looking for a bit more punch so I was going to lose a tooth on the front and add 2 on the back

Any thoughts?

Sun

Sunline

 

Cheap, long lasting.

 

Everything else is overpriced.

Most OEM is Sunline or Sun anyway...

On my 05 I replaced my set last month.  Went 14 51 or a bit more punch.  I think 13 51 could be a lot more fun.  One tooth really made a positive difference.

Just ordered a 13t for the front. Going to give that a go first before changing the rear

Standard for the UK bikes is 13t front and 50t rear. What was on the bike?

 

Many UK riders use 14t/50t for green laning for easier road cruising between lanes.

Yeah that thing was geared for speed!

 

Going to a 14 or 13 will give you quite an improvement.
