06 450 Gearing

I know stock is 13-49 but I was wondering if anyone has changed their gearing at all or if it's perfect stock. I weigh 145 lbs. and was thinking of going to a 48 rear. I'd really appreciate it if I could get ride reports and your weight(roughly) if you have changed from stock gearing. Thanks.

I am 6'1" 225lbs and the stock gearing feels great. if you drop to a 48 you're going to pick up top speed and lose a little acceleration. Not much difference either way with 1 tooth change. You'll also notice that you can stay in the same gear a little longer on top. So far for me the gearing and power of the motor doesnt feel like it needs to be moved or adjusted, the bike just plain pulls from way low on rpms to way up top. I am way more than happy with the bike. :applause:

For me I changed to a 50 tooth. I am 6-3 and weigh 230, I don`t know if that makes much difference on a 450 but I like the way it pulls third gear thru the corners with that setup.
