Guess I should have mentioned that I have a 98 WR400 with the stock ratio of 14/50.

First of all if you really need more top speed you should buy an XR 650! No, just kidding. Throw on a 15 tooth counter shaft sproket and if that is not enough then go smaller on the rear sproket. This is very common here in So Cal for desert riding. Eric
