Which size sprocket for a 2011 250 XC?
Posted 12 July 2012 - 06:31 PM
I have both a 49 tooth and 52 tooth sprockets and i'm not exactly sure what the right one will be for me. I haven't been able to ride the bike yet so i'm trying to take a good guess here.
I ride singletrack, trails, and race harescrambles. I'm somewhat fast and like to lug bikes around when possible.
Which size is everyone running?
Also, what is the stock gearing?
I'm getting some conflicting answers on the stock info.

Regarding gearing, stock is pretty darn good an very versatile. I wouldn't change anything. I ran a 14 front for a bit. It was fine for all but super trials-like moves. I sometimes pivot around on switchbacks by lifting the front and pivoting on the rear. That was much tougher with the 14.
