Need help choosing sprocket for trail and technical riding for a CRF450R

Recommended Posts

I have 2006 CRF450R and want to make it better for trail and technical riding. I was thinking about buying a fan kit and getting different sprockets. Any suggestions on what sprocket type to get?

I only ride technical/fast flowy single track on my 05 CRF250R.

Sprockets - I use 13T/51T which is IMO a good compromise. There are lot of options for actual sprocket choices BUT if you are replacing worn sprockets, also replace the chain.

IMO the best thing I did for technical on my CRF was put on an 11oz Stealthy FWW replacement. Could have gone bigger but well worth the $200ish. Left side outer gasket, FWW puller, impact and did it in my back yard in about an 1 hour.

Hope this helps in some small way :)

JT steel sprocket. Start with replacing the countershaft sprocket with a 1 tooth smaller. Super cheap test maybe $15. Each tooth dropped on the front is like a 3 tooth bicgger rear sprocket.
