Don't think they came with Sunstars OEM, somebody has undoubtably put them on there. 13/48 should work good in the woods, my '04 comes stock with a 13/47 and that's what I put back on it. At least in my neighborhood I've not needed a deeper gear.:worthy:

Actually most Japanese bikes I've seen come with Sunstar sprockets stock.

is 13-48 a more top end? i am looking for the best in between, should i go to 49t

The larger your rear sprocket, the less top end you'll have. With a 49t you'll loose more top end but gain more low gear climbing ability. As I said, mine is geared 13-47 and has plenty of low end gearing with the KDX's very low first gear. Unless your climbing very steep, gnarly, mountainous terrain I personally wouldn't go bigger than the 48.

No sir, that ain't a TTR125.:lol:

A good running KDX will flat rip compared to a TTR125. Things are tight, rocky, and technical in the Missouri hills and the KDX with the stock gearing goes up and over anything here . Will crawl along at a fast walking pace, or run a fire road at a speed way faster than you'd want to fall off of at.

Great bikes, your gonna love it.:worthy:
