Just wondering what gearing you guys are running for your woods setup yz450f

And if anyone has a pic of the oversize acerbic tank on theirs?

What is your skill level?

 

I am generally opposed to gearing a 450F down for the woods for a number of reasons, primarily that it makes the throttle response jerky and it requires more shifting, but if you simply can't manage 1st gear without a bunch of clutch work then I guess you should gear it down.

I use stock gearing. Geared down it didn't have enough top speed for the fast sections. I still think first could be just a little lower for the tight stuff, but I've gotten use to it.
