some sprocket advice
Posted March 08, 2007 - 07:13 PM
Living in the northeast I do alot of tight trail and rocky riding, so alot of slower trail work. Id really like to have a little lower gearing but that bit of road time has prvented me from changing out my sprockets.
For those that have changed out the stock tooth sizes how much of a difference did you really get? Perfect world I wish the WR had a 6 speed tranny but thats not gonna happen. I need a lower 1st, 2nd and a bit of 3rd but want my 4th and 5th to stay where theyre at. I know thats not happening.
Any suggestion on a front/rear combo that would offer a good balance for what Im describing?

you have already got a good balance with the standard sprocket sizes. dont go to making big changes as you will end up way out, i would suggest maybe go up one tooth on the rear and try that.... it worked for me......... you will notice the biggest change if you go up or down a tooth on the front but i think i remember right that one tooth up or down on the front is equal to three on the rear, but i think this is to much change the improvement you are looking for. good luck:ride:

Muddyken did you change out your rear sprocket? If you did what kind of top end drop did you see?
