I would think that a 13 / 55 would be too low but it's a ll matter of preference I guess. I forgot what 12T brand I have but it's a quality sprocket.
I have found it a lot easier and quickerto change out the C/S sprocket vs. the rear sprocket because of all the nuts and bolts and the knuckle busters that come along with it:excuseme:

A 55x13 would give me just a little lower gearing than the 50x12. Thanks in advance.
A 55 rear is one big-assed piece of metal waiting to get munched in rocky terrain, IMO. Besides, I'm not altogether sure just how much of a bend the chain will have to take where it comes out the chain guide on the lower part of the swingarm. It would probably wear out the trailing edge of the rubber piece inside the guide in no time. I would stick with the 50X12.
