sorry for not searching but just had a quick question...

what ratio do i need to make 1st feel like 2nd? i do mostly dune riding so i like speed and never touch first and usually don't even touch 2nd... oh and also i'll have a different wheel set up for offroad so i'd like a little lower than dune gearing there with out changing the front sproket.

Your 07 (and my 08) WR came with 13/50 stock. General rule of thumb...3 teeth on the rear is about equal to 1 on the front (divide rear # by the front # equals final drive ration). Anyway, what stevh0 is runnings is very close to what you would get with 13/44. By the way, if your chain has enough adjustment in it, see if you can borrow a 15 from a buddy and try it.....cheaper than a new rear only to discover it isn't what you were looking for.

Use a 16 front sprocket and you'll get as close as dammit to what you're after:thumbsup:

If your working with your 07 wr, then you should have a 13 front stock, 50 rear, so drop the rear to a 44 will give you almost exactly the same ratio as going to 15 front. Any more and I think you'll be over geared.

ok thanks... I'll stick with the 50 for my dirt wheel and a 44 for my paddle.
