Do you ride singletrack or open desert. 13/50 works well for singletrack. The stock 13/48 is good for higher speed stuff.

I went one tooth up on my 06 and I like it. I only woods ride the bike.

I use a fifty tooth on the rear and 13 tooth on the front for trail riding,it lets me really lug first gear.I also have a 14 tooth front that I can easily install for track days or whatever.Be careful with the chain length I'm pretty sure you need at least one extra link to run 14-50

For the most versatility use wide ratio gears + 13/53. I am surely bias but after years of frustration with the stock gearing, I love the difference it made to my bike.

Where in California are you? If SoCal near Mojave Desert, come take mine for a ride!
