It does make 1st shorter yes. WHen I put mine on my 250 it accels alot faster. You will have to switch alittle more often but to me it was worth it. it pulls very hard.

it did to all on mine....yes all are shorter but I have 6 gears on my 250 and where we ride I dont ever get to hit top speed at all. Im lucky if I hit 4th casue the trails are so tight.

If I were you, i'd go one or two teeth up on the front. The 230's first is already un-usuable and it only gets better at third or forth, so id go one or two bigger in the front, or one or two smaller in the rear

Well go smaller in the rear its basicly the same. Bit more expensive though. Just remember I'm not telling you what to do haha. Just some advice.

I just tried it on the street.....:thumbsup: .....and i think it definately shortens the gears ALOT..... but i like it ...i can wheelie with throttle now...and it sounds a bit louder and more manly :thumbsup:....but for 15$ or something for the sprocket i think its a fun thing to try

....i wana try the 14 too.. when shifting with the 12t the bike tends to rock back and forth....im trying it on dirt tomorrw....ill iinform u guys later about the difference on dirt
