Has anyone run a 15 tooth sprocket on their YZ426? Going down to Baja in May and looking for a different setup than the 14/48 setup I ran last year. I did a search but they mostly came up about 450's. Will the 15 tooth fit and has anyone ran it. Thanks:thumbsup:

My 2002 YZ426 had a 15 front and 47 rear on it when I bought it last year. The previous owner just rode it to work and back, so he liked the speed. For high speed desert running it would be great, but I needed some more low end for the singletrack sections I ride here. I went all the way down to a 13/51, and it works great for technical sections. I miss the top end speed, though. The 15/47 combo seemed to work fine for the short period of time I had it.

Thanks for the reply. I run 13/50 on the trails and it's great. Sounds like the 15 tooth will work great and I'll probably run it with 48 rear so that should work nice. Thanks again.

Here you go :applause:

I have an '01 426 with 15/47 gearing. I ride / race desert in and around Southern Nevada and it works GREAT!! Granted, the Rekluse takes care of business for me in the tight stuff, but I find the spread between the gears suits me just fine. :lol: It is a little tall when I'm putting with my 8 year old on his 65, and I will drop back to the 14/47 if the races don't have much high speed stuff and are more technical. The only other time change the gearing, is when I go out "Billy Goat" trail riding (13/50) in Nelson Hills or Black Mountain!

For Baja, bump up to the 15! You'll be glad you did! :eek:
