I don't know what the woods are like out in Joisey, but in the west taller gearing in the woods is not a good idea Going taller on a 450 in the woods will keep things smooth and not abrupt down low. Riding the woods all day on a 450 geared for down low will just kill you,in the end you will be less tired. Or are you one of the spodes who thinks you need a big bore kit for the 450 and a spiffy aftermarket pipe. You have Joisey all wrong friend,you have no clue where I live in Jersey,do not speculate. Go buy your accelerator pump cover and aftermarket pipe for that 450 that will get you going.
