05 250x gearing(what is stock?)

hey all, bought this bike, it has a stock front I think, and a renthal 50tooth rear... I find it luggy in the tight trails, its either high first gear or lug second gear, what is stock??? Im thinking maybe go to a 52 rear?

stock gearing for your bike is 14/53. I changed the front to 13 and run the 53 in the rear for my sons 05 it pulls where ever when ever. Good luckand enjoy your bike,there alot of fun! Great bike!

The lower tooth in the rear is for more top end and wider spacing between gears. I went to a 14/50 combo because my wife's '06 has been modded and she had more motor than gears. There isn't much problem with holding on to torque on the 250x, even with the gearing change. If you go back the other way you will be getting tons of torque and a lowere top end. Depends on preference.

I run a 13/51 and love it. Still gets it low and not much sacrifice on top end.

+1, I LOVE my 13/51T gearing, it made a huge difference and the bike accelerates a lot faster and the front end can come up in 3rd with no help.:banghead:
