I'm buying the '07 YZ450F and I'll be riding it mostly harescramble and some motocross, should i add teeth to the rear sprocket? One magazine said go up one tooth, I'm wondering if that's enough. Anything else I should know about riding this beast in harescrambles?

I'm currently running 13/50 for mx and 14/50 for crosscountry. Just put a 50 on the back and switch out the front... if you want to go real fast put a 15 on the front, first geear is still managable...
