I rode my '02 426 with a 14-51 (3.64:1) setup for quite awhile but just changed to a 13-50 (3.85:1...a little bit lower gearing) and I really like the new setup. I ride lot's of single track trails in the mountains and occasionally get on a motocross track and this setup is working out very well for me.
