Gearing question for my brand new 2009
Posted 30 March 2012 - 10:24 AM
I'm a new owener of a 2009 250x, bought it brand new!
If i'm not mistaken, I believe my bike is geared 13t/53t in stock form.
I'm loooking to get a little more top end because the trails I ride are mostly wide open dirt roads were I'm going 45-55MPH.
My friend has a brand new 49T Renthol sproket, do you think this would work for me?

I also run a 14/48 set up.. people think you need that 1st gear for the tight twisties.. if you are an advanced rider you will have no problem with this gearing set up in the tight shit and its great in the top end.. can still wheelie for days in any gear with the 48 back sprocket. I would definitely recommend it, especially at 25-30 bucks a sprocket, its nothing to risk. Although you will have to cut your chain 3 links if you are dropping from the 53 to 48. 2 links to a 49.
