I have two tire set ups. One for up north riding in Michigan with the boys and the other for 80 % street 20 % trail when I an around home. I have track masters on both and are a DOT knobbie. The 15-49 I ues for dirt, but when I am on the road it is running to many rpm,s for crusing at 60 mph or any faster. I want to use the 15 for both so I just need to take out a couple of links to switch tires back and forth. Does anybody know how many teeth to get for the street rear sprocket?? This is on a 03 WR 450 dual sported.

My water temp was only 140 to 145F when it was 80F. That's probably bad for lubrication since the oil will be thick while you are running at relatively high rpms combined with real operating loads.
I blocked off about 60% of both radiators and now am getting 90 to 100F above ambient, which is where it should be. Sitting at a stop light for 5 minutes isn't so good, but wasn't good before either.
