can anybody with a 06 look in their manual and give me all of the gear ratios out of the front in the spec section. i am trying to figure out the best possible gearing for my 05 , I went to a 13 on the front which made it great in the woods, but not so great in open fields. took away too much from the top. I am thinking a new 06 just might be what I have to end up getting. thanks for the info

can anyone post the same specs for a 426? I'm trying to figure out ahead of time what sprockets I'll probably end up needing for my 06 to get it geared the way I want.
