i know guy that that the 48 states and part of canada,he ran 15/48.......he kept his speeds at 55-60 and was in no rush..he liked the extra torque......and larger sprockets wear longer and the chain definately wears longer..

Unless you'll be doing a lot of tight off road riding, the stock gearing works very well on the XR650L.  So I would go with 15/45.

 

I have 15/48 right now on mine, because I have my "dirt" tires on it.  For street riding, I like 15/45 better.  But on Saturday when I go visit the Foresthill OHV riding trails, I might go with 14/48.
