Would anyone know the best gearing for desert, long ranges, I have 13/49 and I feel I can go faster, anyone know what I should use for more top speed?

I have a crf450r and ride desert also.  Currently I'm running the stock 13/48 gearing but I'm gonna try a 14t sprocket soon.  I have a 13/49 setup for my bike also but that gearing sucks for california desert.  I would try 14/48 if I were you.

For the faster hare scrambles/desert style races I run 14/47 on my CR 250. It pulls the gear well and gives decent top speed.  It mostly gives you the ability to maintain a pretty good clip without revving the guts out of the bike over longer distances.

Thank you, really helps, I know more about the motor than I do with the gearing
