What's good gearing to choose for 1998 YZ400F when i'm using it on streets?I know i cant get wide ratios out of it like WR but by changing front & rear sprockets it should be some improvement.

you can change the gearbox out to a wr400 gearbox if you'd like im sure. problem is locating one for sale though. try experimenting with sprocket sizes.

try 14/48 that will work for the street and still allow it to work offroad
