I checked my rear sproket last night when I removed the wheel to mount a new tire. My dealer told me that it was supposed to be a 48 tooth but it is stamped as a 50 tooth. How much more torque will I get with a 52 tooth which seems to be the biggest I can find for my 99.

If you want to gear even lower, go with the 13T countershaft sprocket.

1. Better pull coming out of the corners.
2. Easier loft of the front. Great for trails and logs.
3. If you find yourself stuck in between 1st and 2nd or 2nd and 3rd on the trails or the track, it will help you stay in 2nd or 3rd with less bog and more power when you need it. Thie results in less shifting back and forth.
4. To me anyways, it made the bike feel lighter with the improved snap.
I also found it to be good on the track, allowing me to ride in 3rd gear most the time. I think if you try it, you wont be dissapointed at all. If you dont like it, I will buy the 52 tooth sprocket from you since I am getting ready for new chain and sprocket. My bike came stock with a 50 tooth sprocket. My friends 99 had a 50t and he went to a 52 and loved it as well. If you kept the 50 on the rear and went to the 13 in the front (countershaft) sprocket the results would be similar, a little more torque. I would give the 52t a shot. This is mostle relative to track and trail. If you are hauling ass ascross the desert with a 52t rear sprocket, you bill be looking for more speed than torque. The 48 may work for you in that way.
