Took my SM offroad today with "E" wheels!!

Recommended Posts

What a great time I had today, I took my 2006 SM with E wheels offroad today. I'm running a 15/47 setup and thought I had a some good grunt until my buddy and I switched bikes. He has a 2005 RM250 with stock 13/50 gearing. That thing was a wheelie monster!

Anyway, the SM felt a lot different than the RM in the wide open. Riding the trails, the SM did great! I had a few close calls in some of the tight trail "S" burms, but after a while, I was having a great time!

That gearing will be OK in the open terrain but if it is hilly, slick, tight, or just about any other complication you will want to gear down even more. I used to run a 13/47 combo with the stock bore and it was great for lifting the front wheel over stuff.
