I'm running a 13 front and a 52 rear on my 96 600r. It's really more manageable at the slower speeds.

From stock gearing, go down ont tooth on the front. Works great for me....

14/45 works wonders for me. I never have any low/mid end problems and can top out at around 85-90

15/45 for the street
14/45 for the roads/trails
13/45 for the tight stuff

Only takes 5 minutes to change, anyway.
