gearing

Recommended Posts

for what bike? On my '04 Rm250 im running stock 13-50. I find 1st low enough to do most technical situations, but i still have my top speed. Ive tried a lower 12-50 before, and 1st is good for the real technical stuff, but it runs out early, and 2nd is a good all around woods crusing gear. I found myself swapping between 1st and 2nd too much, so i went back to 13-50. So really it all depends on how open and fast the trails are that your riding. If your doing enduro type riding, Id say go for stock MX gearing, or maybe lower 1 or 2 teeth in the back. If your ride more open, faster trails, like harescrambles, again go with stock, and you might even want to gear it up a bit. Its all about what you like, and the only real way to figure that out is my trying different gearings on your bike

I am running stock gearing on my '00 RM250. I tried dropping a tooth on the front and I was shifting more and seeing very little benefit in the technical stuff.
