Needs a 6th gear!!

Recommended Posts

Finally got my bike set up the way I want. Switched from a 300 to this KLX 450. Love the power, running 12t and 50t gearing. Works well, however, on fire roads, etc. searching constantly for a 6th gear. I think that would change the whole bike and there would be no need to change sprockets based on riding conditions. The only thing I really like better about the 300 is the sweet KTM gearing.

this is exactly the reason I jumped ship and went with an EXC530

the 6th gear is so nice & 1st - 5th are almost exactly the same as the KLX450

so running 14-50 is great for slow stuff and 6th rocks the fire roads etc.

otherwise the Klx was a great bike - no mechanical issues at all

:bonk:
