I have plates on my 450 so I want a bit more top end. 50 MPH and she is reving quite high where a 16 tooth would add 15 MPH to that while 1st would still have plenty of torque. Still, if I have to mess with the chain at 16T I think I will return it and go with a 15T front sprocket. 50 is stock for the rear.
You guys are sure the chain won't wrap around 16/50 ?

I think I'm with the other fella, I'm sure a 16t won't actually fit........

I think stock is 14/48 They told me going down one on the front is like going up 3 on the rear. So if that is correct, yes it would be pretty close to what you did. Idleing and real slow speeds thru the technicle stuff and pulling real steep hills when you cant get a good run at them is way way easier. I went out yesterday and purposely(sp) rode some stuff that I have had a hard time with in the past, boy oh boy what an awesome improvement. I rarely see 80mph so losing a little top end was no big deal to me. And no, I am a big slacker and didnt snap the pics this weekend. I will try to real soon though.
Hey bnbt. 14 teeth is the stock front, right? I went to a 50t in the rear and but had to get a longer chain. Gives me a little more grunt in the steep stuff. Does going to a 13t in the front do the same thing as I did?

So if I'm currently at 14/50 with a 116 link chain, I can go to a 13/50 with the same chain, right?
Yes, 13/50 will work with stock chain.
