what gearing are you track and tight trail riders using

9 posts in this topic

For trail riding (what I mostly do), I went to a renthal 13 tooth front sprocket. Considering going 49 tooth back as well. I've heard flywheel weights are good too for series trailriding (mountains and such), but you would want to take it off for track most likely.

14/48:stock. This gearing works very well for me but I am only 5'10" and 155lbs. Heavier guys may want to go up in back or down on the front sprocket;note a change on the front sprocket is worth like 3-4 teeth on the rear. :)

I just switched back to 14/48 from 14/49. Believe it or not I'm actually stalling the bike less with the 48.

MXA magazine says that 14/47 is even better for less stalling. The gear ratio spins the engine faster and helps with stalling.
