I just bought a 05 wr 450 and need to get a larger sprocket while I get used to the bike. Any recommendations of what size I need?

Instead of going up in the rear go down one tooth in front.
I did that and never went back. Trails in my area are mostly tight and rocky or rooty.
A 13 T front allows me to almost 'tractor' around tight stuff with almost no throttle input.
Front cog = $15.00
Rear cog = $50.00

I would leave it stock at 14/50, 15/50 might be too high for gearing on stock bike. I found I lost all sense of accelleration. Well, maybe that's what you want?

Thanks.......... Looks like you have the fix. Did you have to break the chain? :thumbsup:

No you don't, but you will have to move the adjusters all the way in to do it if you don't have a clipped masterlink.
