It depends on what kind of riding you do. I own a 06 yz450f and I am all about narrow trails and hill climbs. So I geared mine down (2 more teeth on the rear sprocket) and it works great for me. Specially since I dont have to clutch so much and worry about getting arm pump on those long hill climbs.

It is 13/49, look on you're sprockets...it will say the numbers. I run stock, and I like it. Many people went up to a 50 in the rear though.

Hehe, my problem is that i bought it used, it had runned 15 hours.

it was 13 in front, and a x-tra 14 by the side, came along.

in the back it was 49, but on the x-tra wheel it was 51.

I went from the stock 49 to a 50 & it made a big difference. Much more snappy off the bottom & feels better around the track. :thumbsup:
