I'm with ya. 3rd pinned is a great woods racing speed, but 1/4 throttle 4th is so much easier on the engine. I'm a whirldwind of shifting 2-3-4-3-2-3-4 for 2 hours at a time. It works though. Believe it or not - a pipe and a megabomb will completely move the power, add a bazzaz to fine tune the setup and you'll be checking-out on the competition :thumbsup:

forgot pipe and bazzaz are better than a tooth change

What sprockets are you running? If you are stock at 13/48, you might try a 49 or 50 on the back. A 50 will take a longer chain. I use a 13/50 and like it.

Look closer, it should be stamped on there.

A 49 will allow you to shift into 3rd sooner and allow you to keep it there through most corners.
