I believe stock is 13/49. When I called I told them stock # of teeth. What will that combo do on the track? woods?

Well, that's 4 teeth higher than stock (13/45). Probably be great desert gearing, but I don't think you'll like it on an MX course very much. They confused you with an older model.

Kelstr runs 14/48 on his Honda and loves it for MX. He says he uses 2nd for pretty much all the turns and some jumps and 3rd for straights and longer jumps. According to him it makes the bike pull really long and smoothly and it's pretty much just like using 3rd and 4th with stock gearing. :thumbsup:

I run my 4 speed with a 15/49 (versus the 14/48 stock set up, for a net of two teeth higher), and that's how it works, too; long pulls in the gears, and not much shifting. The '03 has a lower geared primary set than the '06, so that throws the comparison off a little, but you might have something there, anyway. It could be something he'll like.

Same, the shop tried to tell me the stock gearing was 14/50 or something...I was like NO it's 13/49...and he's like NO, NO. I sat and argued with him, then finally I was like "forget then, I will just buy the chain online." (Cause I wanted it cut do 114) He's like...ALRIGHT ALRIGHT.
