If your going to San Felipe 15/48
Around Mikes sky ranch 15/50 or maybe even 15/48.
The pacific side (Ensenada) 14/50.
I would just stick to 15/50 that would give you a fair chunk of
top end. keep in mind that there are hills, long deserts, goat trails,
etc etc out there you want to enjoy all with out sacrificing to much
Where exactly are you guy's going?

last weekend, full open throttle 6th gear--and I'm sure I was not doing anything close to 90.
6th gear??????????? hook me up. where did you find a 6 speed wr450?
i would also say 15/50. unless your an expert/pro you wont need any more then that. also 15/50 can still be ridden over tight stuff. it just sucks.

I have a WR426 bored to a 444 with cams and head work. I run a 14/45 for the long straight stuff and top out at 102mph. But with my stock motor I found that I got the hightest top speed with a 14/47. A 14/46 was too much gear and a 14/48 was not enough. With the stock motor and a 14/48 I topped out at 93mph. I have a speedo and have played with gearing way too much but finally have the right setup.
Baja Single track only -14/48
Baja Race course -14/45
Combination of the two -14/47

16/47 - Very tall gearing, top speed if your motor could pull it would be about 107.5mph
14/47 - Good for your stock motor in Baja, any taller and your motor will bog in 5th. Top Speed - 96mph
Go with the 14/47 for all around Baja stuff.
Where are you going in Baja in Feb?

It does make a big difference to the spacing of the gears and higher top speed.
I would try this first, if not enough, get a 48 rear and a new chain to go with the 15 front.
