Here's the deal, I am an enduro rider that enjoys somewhat techical terrain (hill, rocks, etc...) Mostly, I ride in Johnson Valley, Red Mountain and Big Bear if you guys know the areas. I have a 05 wr450 and I changed my gearing from 14/50 to 13/50. I've now got bottom end torque that is unbelievable. Running slightly higher rpms is also where the yamaha's like to be. But I fear I now may have too much bottom end. Gone is the gentle giant and I now have a more agressive , wheel spinning, wheelie monster. I can and will probably learn to adjust to it, but... would I have been better off with 14/52 or should I just go to 13/48 to settle it down a bit. I kinda liked the gentle giant that it was. I wanted a little more, but maybe not that much more.
