06 450 gearing

I just got a new 450 . Is everyone running the stock gears or changing. I am thinking about trying a 51 rear.Motocross only. This is my first 4-stroke, maybe I just need to get use to it.

For me and my track only riding, the stock gearing is perfect. :ride:

Yeah id ride it for awhile...especially if its going to be mx only....I think the stock gearing is perfect too.....second pulls forever in a start, first has enough snap off the bottom and is long enough to get you over insane stuff with very little runup. I cant think of anything id like to change for the track.

i changed to a 51 for the bush and it really helped...for the track i would stay stock.

I bought a 50, and I like it better than the stock setup. Second gear for the tight corners, and a quick short shift to third. Third still pulls hard and long. Never have to use first.

i have a renthal 52 in blue for $50. used once

Renthal Blue 50T sprocket allows me to ride the tracks in 3rd and 4th gears. Less shifting the better.

I've been thinking that a 50 toother might work better for the couple of tracks that I've been riding. On a number of corners 3rd seems just a tad high and I'd rather avoid shifting down into second.
