5 posts in this topic

Hi all, have a 05 wr450 with 14/53 gearing, just bought a spare rear wheel of ebay, got it cheap, only thing is its a 19", any one know what the closest gearing to 14/53 on a 18" wheel would be for the 19".

Gearing will be the same. Circumference from the 18 to 19 should be the same. Just on the 18 you have more side tread...

I ran my 125 wheel on my 450.The smaller tire,aluminum sprocket and lighter tube made a huge difference I never would have thought that I would have noticed it as much as I did.
