the stock rings are gone and its time to replace, just curious what gearing everyone else is running on thier '05 and why. Stock has been good to me but I think it would be nice to tame out the hit a little if dropping a tooth in the rear helps. Thanks.

They have 51 standard, my mates race with a 48 to use 2nd more.
Stops smashing the limiter too, it also has more than enough power to handle 45 rear for ~160km/h runs, offroad riding.

After I put on an FMF Titanium pipe I changed to 14/48 and have loved it. I moved from middle 3rd - lower 4th riding on the tracks to middle-upper middle 3rd. Only in deeper soil do I feel like I need to maybe add a couple teeth to the rear. I'm going to try a 13/48 combo the next time I'm at the deep soil track closest to me. Hope this helps.
