yep, one down on the front is 2 up on the rear. the front is much easier to change,if you don't like the gear you can go back to the original gearing, on my 01 yz 426 I droped one down on the front & one up on the rear, I trail ride only, & need the lower gearing for the roots & sand washes. :thumbsup:
