So after 87.7 miles off-road yesterday I found myself going through the gears a lot. Today I switched my 47t back to my stock 43t rear. I changed the gears the first year I got the bike and never went back to try it again. Loved the longer range in the gears. Cant wait to go offroad to see how much low end grunt I lost. anyone running a 14t front?

Does the 14T fit or did you have to change the case saver?

I burned my clutch riding with stock gearing. If you intend to ride heavily offroad I would suggest at least 13/47 (or 14/50). Stock gearing is really too tall for offroad. I'm running a 14 front with a sandman case saver and though it's fine there is a fair amount of rubbing. The next time I replace my drivetrain I'm going back to a 13 front.

I was running 14/50 and recently went back to 13/48.

I had light contact with the Sandman case saver with the 14t but nothing major (no grooves worn into it). I think this may be because I do tend to keep the chain a bit on the loose side of things.

Went back to 13/48 since the bike is more responsive for the riding I do. I can also pull a higher top speed in 6th gear with the 13/48 setup which in my feeble way of thinking means the gearing matches the power output of the bike better.
