I am planning to change my sprockets to 15/48 and currently run a 14/50 on my '06 WR450. Can I get by with the stock chain length with this gearing change? I need more top end for the occasional trip on the highway.
Thanks for your help,

Stock Chain will work just fine :thumbsup:

You will enjoy the revs on the highway :lol:

I have that on my bike now too for highway, works good, can pull a wheelie at 110km/h in 5'th on the pavement, love it, can go to about 150 before revving out.

should do about 155kph on the gps.

thought about 15-42

and then 12-42 for the woods or offroad (same gear ratio as the 14-50)

still playing with that idea tho
