'05 X sprocket sizes

Recommended Posts

From the Honda website it appears that they chose a 13 - 49 combo instead of the 14 - 53 for the '04's. Can someone with an '05 confirm this please? I wonder why they did that when the ratios are similar and it seems a 14 would be less wear on a chain? Clearance maybe ???

Don't believe everything you read on Honda's web site. Last year they had the sprocket sizes wrong for the X on the web site. By the way, I went to a 13 on the front with the 53 rear. Made the bike hill climb like a tractor. Too tall of gearing for steep hills with the 14 IMO - and my friend also with an X.
