Killer! You should be able to rip right through that on a dirt bike.

A 15t front will make your gearing even worse for carrying the front wheel. I would say look at a 48-50t rear, but make sure your chain is long enough. If the chain and sprockets are worn a fair bit already, you might as well replace the whole lot. Another option is a 13t front sprocket, but that will be pretty tough on the chain.

And here is some pictures from taking it out this last weekend just playing around doing little jumps trying to get better at ridin a wheelie and the last pic is of a pretty steep hill I climbed 3 times really easy but of course on the 4th run up the hill I was going to fast and launched off the lip of the hill and had to bail off the bike in the air but the bike is okay and started right back up.

I am not a fan of black - but the bike looks really good! have fun with it! they are relaible as a rock, given you keep the oil fresh and the air fllter clean. The XR6 was and is a famous ride in my humble opinion and has to it's great credit and history many wins in the most grueling race of all.
The Baja 1,000. Time and technology moved on and today we have the XR650R and the CRF450X, great machines, but the XR600 is ... well.. just a good looker in my opinion and a fast, reliable and very proven machine.
