The general consensus among the posts I have read is that you will lose a small amount of power at the low RPM end, gain significant mid-range power and lose some engine brake effect throughout the range.

You might think about the stock 14 tooth counter with a 52 tooth rear. Seemed to be the right change for my riding style (old and slow).

I noticed no difference in power at the extreme low end, yet after appx 3,000 rpms it's a BIG change. BRAAAAAPPPP!!!! instead of BRRRRRRRRRAAP.
It doesn't crawl at extremely low RPMS's as well (I mean idling with the clutch out), but that's a rare occasion anyway.
I see no negatives for me, I'm primary an eastern trail rider. The YZ timing seems to start easier, too!
