Thank you sir. I have everything from the 48-51 was just curious. Everyone that I have talk to said theres a ga between 2nd and 3rd with the stock gearing.

Have you ridden it? Do you think there's a gap there?

The 2010 has the exact same primary and gear box ratios that the '06 and up have. The only difference is in the fact that the '06-'09 was geared 13/49, and the '10 is geared 13/48.

Incidentally, my '06 is currently geared 13/48, and I guaranty you there are no gaps anywhere in the ratio set.

Try it and see what you like.

I ran a 13/50 on my 09 so I'll throw that on the 2010 to if thats the case of the ratio aspect. Personally I liked the was the bike pulled with that gearing, I could use 3rd gear alot more with that gearing. Thanks for your help alot.

I won't disagree with you about the spec's on the gearing from 06-10. However for what ever reason , the 10 does have a problem with gap between 2nd and 3rd.... it could be the power delivery , who know.. but its there!

Just did some trail riding today with the stock gearing and it was a nightmare. I stalled so many times I was about to throw the thing down a cliff. 1st gear is way to fast for anything but open track, I will definetly be throwing a 51 on the back with a new chain to see if that makes things a bit better...On the forest roads it was perfect of course and I used all of 5th many times on some straight stretches.

Its a MX bike.... no way is it geared for trail riding. Even with a 51t , 1st will be tall for tight woods...

Where/how do you turn the idle up?

Cold start knob doubles as the idle speed screw.

RTFM :)

I did RTFM, but clearly missed that part as I thought it was some part of the power tuner - doh...:)
