Gearing on DR250 NOT Dr350 Help

Recommended Posts

Howdy folks-

Have a 1994 DR250SES.  I want to change the gearing for more-off road.  After searching the forums I find lots of info for the 350 but not the 250.  Gearing now is 14/42.  OEM parts show a 49 rear but not for the S model.  Questions:  can I go to a 13 in front without stressing the system?  What brands offer a rear sprocket that will fit this bike.  All of my searches so far (Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, Partzilla etc..) show tons of sprockets, but I cant't find one for my model or year.  Any help appreciated.

Look at Bikebandit.  They list sprockets specifically for the DR250SE.  By the way, the E stands for electric start and the last S in DR250SES stands for the year of bike.  To answer the other part of your question, you should be able to drop down from a 14 to a 13 tooth front sprocket with out over stressing the system.  I've had several dirt bikes with 520 chains that used 13 tooth front sprockets.
