Recommended Posts

Guys i let a buddy of mine ( honda mech, champinion vet rider ) ride my bike this weekend at the harescramble, he came back and said it needed to be geared down that it was too tall??? any of your gone up a few teeth in the rear or anything and if so did u need a new chain??? and what were your results?

Went to a Renthal 13 front(14 stock). Ride a lot of technical, snotty, and steep terrain. You can still use the OEM chain. It helped alot on climbs.

If you do change the chain to a 520 o ring you will need a fastway spacer for behing the front sprocket.

I changed the stock 14 front for the Renthal 13 and it was a welcome change for the technical tight stuff.

5th gear feels like 4th now but it still has enough top end for me.
