Can someone provide a simple chart of gear ratios. 1 through 5 th WR450 vS YZ450.

I'm thinking of changing my YZ to WR trans.

Thanks

Wow, 5th is "overdrive" :cry:

I was told that the WR 2nd is close the YZ first and the YZ 4th is lower than the WR 5th. So look at it like a YZ gearbox, except it has the extra "granny low" and high gear is higher numerically. :cry:

Thanks guys. My thing is first gear is tall for me on my YZ (even geared down), and that make neutral intrusive on the trails. I'm thinking about trying to swap geaboxes. After a few races I have realized I cannot race this thing. My 250 is much better in tighter stuff. If not I will go red on the 450f.
