On my 00 426, I personally run a 14/47 in the desert, and have found that it has plenty of top end, along with a nice kick of acceleration anytime I want to get on the gas. Has a hard time pulling the wheel up though.

My '03 has the same primary gearing as an '04. I run a 15/49 pretty much everywhere. It makes first a bit tall for trail riding, but we mostly go fast enough that it isn't an issue. OTOH, in the desert it gives me enough gear for most situations without being too tall to play around back in the deep breaks of the washes in the badlands. I probably won't gear it any higher, although a 15/47 might work, and I don't think I'd want a 16 on it. That big a front sprocket would require a new case saver, and a notch ground into the front of the chain slider.
