Are you running stock exhaust? With aftermarket exhaust bike seems to work well with stock gearing, I can ride 3rd in most corners. However stock exhaust you might want to jump to the 50 tooth. Bike is a bit sluggish in stock form.

yeah, i'm running the stock exhaust. my sprocket sponsor is all out of 49's and i'm in pretty quick need. the more i think about it a 50 would probably be perfect anyway. thanks, and if anyone else has some hot setup tips for gearing or anything else i'd be glad to hear it.

I have a Yoshi rs-2 exhaust system on my 08 and I run a 50t sprocket everywhere I go except for when I go to the dunes, then I run a 48-49t depending on conditions.

For general riding I am super happy with the 50t sprocket. It added quite a bit of snap in the lower 3 gears and still goes plenty fast on topend for most situations.
