I run 12/53 on my 250 RFS but it has a different gearbox and a lot less grunt than the 400. I have had no wear issues yet. But you can expect it to wear the slider and CS faster than usual. Just keep an eye on it.

Of coarse a better but more expensive solution would be to change the gearbox to the EXC ratios. Then you could run some higher gears.

well a lot of the riding i do is tight single track , so 12/53 might be the way to go. i read about guys going 13/54 so would 12/54 be ok?

a 2002 mxc has a close ratio 6 speed. the person geared it so low for tight bush riding. its 1st gear now is close to what an exc's 1st is. the best thing to do would be to switch to a exc transmission if your bush riding.

Not really looking to a trany switch. Especially if I can just keep the 12 and go to a 53 on the back
