gearing a yz400f for more speed?

ive studded my bike for this winter. im gonna be riding on the rivers quite a bit and i want more speed then last year so im gonna change up the sprockets. how fast can you get one of these bikes to go? im just thinkin 1 larger in the front and maybe a tooth or 2 smaller in the rear. what will that do for me?



15 in front 49 in back works great on a wr. first will be very high though on a yz. maybe 14/48 would be better

im not really doin any tight trails so i think that might be ok. 1 tooth in the back isn't enough, maybe with one in the front as well it might be good.

that bike will pull whaterver gearing you put on it,I've got 15/37 on mine for road racing, no problem

what kind of speeds to you get out of that gearing?

just to let you know I run a 15/46 combo and top out at around 95! checked it versus the gps :cry: and just to let you know the bike above with the 15/37 probably pulls anything from 105 - 115 or more depends on what he has done to the tranny.

      Got a break in the weather over the weekend, and was finally able to get out on a track for the first time since October.  I know I suck compared to a lot of guys (and kids for that matter), but I always have a blast twisting a grip and roosting some dirt!  Here's a raw uncut lap around the MX track at IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono, CO.  Was a fun day despite some wind.  Also, there was a drift car club having a meet on the road course.  So, got to check out some drift car action while we were taking a break.

      Lightly used Clarke Gas Tank (model #11614) for a 2010-13 YZ450F.  Includes cap.  For fuel injected YZ450F, so needs to have fuel pump transferred over.  Rest of stock tank hardware fits perfectly.  2.8 gallon capacity, so great for desert, hare scrambles, or WORCS.  Retails for $240.
