KTM 350 SFX gearing

Recommended Posts

Hi guys just got my 2019 KTM 350 SFX, the current gearing is 13/50 but I’m finding it too short on the trails was thinking 14/49 to give it some more legs, any thoughts?

Yes, that will help spreading out the gears.

I used 14/48 on my 2014 350SXF when I went to Baja. It was a lot better than stock, but we were doing a lot of road work and felt like I was sitting in top gear all day long. The 350 has an amazingly long powerband so don't be afraid to rev it.

I understand that in the case of trail riding, it doesn't make sense to cruise along at 10k rpm. If you are doing  a lot of road work, you may need a 6-speed EXC but it's worth trying the tall gearing on the SXF first. 

Just be careful of getting stuck on any big hills, as first can be pretty tall w 14T front.
