Another Spocket Question

I have a 15 tooth front and a 45 tooth rear. Bike runs real nice at 45-55. I am trying to increase this sweetspot to 60-65. I commute with this ride and do mostly dirt roads and fire trails. Called for larger OEM front sprocket(cheapest and easiest, not made or smaller OEM rear sprocket. Who sells them? After market?

Thanx

If you want anyone to help you, you must let us know what bike you are talking about. However, if you do a search on this subject, I would be surprised if your final drive questions are not answered...:ride::thumbsup:

What bike are you refering to?

It is a 2008 XR650L.

Stock gearing, I always felt the XRL was geared right for the sweet spot you're looking for.

If redline in top gear will net you 100 (it does, just about) then 65mph will be 65% of redline, geared much taller and it seems you'd be lugging it.

Huffa2 has a geared-higher-than-stocker, though, and it seems to work out.
