gearing? exc 500

Recommended Posts

I have a 16 exc 500 and I keep running out of fuel before my buddies. My gearing is 14/52. My question is if I drop to 14/50 will that make that big of a difference? But I don't want to give up the low gearing for the tight single track. My fuel light came on @74 miles and my buddies are getting 90.

I run 14/52 on my 16 as well and avg about 75-80 too. 250#. FMF 4.1. I don't see how going down 2 on the rear is going to get you better mileage on trails.

Ha ha ,I'm an average 6 foot guy @200 lbs. Trail riding in Washington. And I'm about 60lbs lighter than the guy who got 90 miles.
