sprocket question

Recommended Posts

If you were riding MX on a 250F and weighed 225 lbs, and could choose from the following 2 options, would you use a 13/49 or a 13/52 sprocket combination and why?

depends how you ride. there ar some big pros out there that probabley run 12 because the are hualing ass over everything and never really get bogged down. and somewhere there is a 350lb dude running a 15 kz he never gets out of first.

try both if you have the cash and see what you like better.

I would gear down the 250f because of your weight and the fact that you will have a hard time tapping it out in 5th on most tracks.

13/52 would give a nice increase in acceleration over stock.

You have your numbers backwards.

Larger front or smaller back - more top speed less acceleration

Smaller front or larger back- more acceleration less top speed
