8 posts in this topic

I'm converting my YZ to dual sport and was wondering if any of you have done it and what is a good sprocket combo?

15 T 51T is good for over 105 MPH on a WR. Your YZ is geared shorter though. What kind of top speed are you looking for?

You may want to consider a chushined rear hub for street use. Street bikes all have it to save the transmission. For serious street conversion I would also add an oil cooler and some kind of increased oil sump tank. 1.2 quarts is very little oil for the engine and transmission. :)

I am running 15/45 gearing on my WR400. It is good for 100mph top speed, and reasonable 60mph cruising.
