What yz250 Sprocket combos fit with 114 chain length

Recommended Posts

I have a new to me 06 YZ250 with 14/50 sprockets and had a wet trail ride yesterday, I decided I need a better tire, Lower gearing, and Bark Busters to make it ideal right now.

 

A) I was thinking of going up to 52 in the rear but the chain is still good...Any chance it will fit on 114 Length Chain? (14/50 = 3.57, 14/52 = 3.710)

B) The other option is 13/50 and cutting the chain to fit? (13/50=3.846)

C) if I want to get drastic...could I fit 13/52? with stock 114 link chain? (13/52=4.0)

 

Thinking of initial options to lower the gearing for my woods riding. 

 

I had an Excel Gearing Calculator for my XR650R that told you the chain length with different sprocket combos but haven't found anything similar for the YZ250

 

Thanks in advance Ya'll

What's your riding area like? I run 13/49 in tight woods with ups/downs and very few fast sections, and it's pretty much perfect. Dropping to a 13 might not require chain cutting, and it's worth almost 3 teeth in the rear. Where is your chain adjuster?
