I recommend just getting a 13T front and leave the 50 alone.
You can easily put a 14 back on for taller gearing with the same chain.

I did a search already but couldn't find any conclusive answers to my questions so here it goes. I am interested in getting a little more low end for riding very tight single track and because I very rarely go WFO on my WR450. I guess my options are going down a tooth in the front or going up in the back. I am not certain but isn't it better for the chain to go up in the back? My first concern is doing what will work best for the bike but then I would also like it to be fairly easy for me to change so I can change the sprockets depending on where I am riding that day. Also, I want a little more low end but I don't want a wheelie machine and I don't want to loose TOO much top end - Anyone care to recommend a sprocket size that would work well for me? I was thinking of going to a 52 in the rear but that is more or less a stab in the dark. Any opinions here? Thanks.
