PostSubject: Mountain set up   Mon Jul 27, 2015 10:39 pm

After two tours in Colorado this summer using the 13/45 I was often wishing for a little more power above 10,000 ft and the ability to crawl along on the single track trails. So after reading several of the post from fellow WR riders I ordered at 50t sprocket and 112 link chain. WOW what a difference it has made. Now it is more like having a 5 speed with a granny gear. My son has decided to put the same set up on his WR too, he has been riding the stock 13/43. We are headed back to CO next week for another two weeks of riding. I will post up my feelings of the sprocket combo when we return.

Interesting, let us know how you like it.

I ordered a 14/51 setup. It's somewhere in between your two setups, but I ride at sea level. So I'm hoping it will be a good mix for trail use and some road use.

The 14-51 would be close to running 13-48, I changed to 13-47 and I may go to 13-49 or 50, single track here is pretty tight it is way better than the 13-43 thats for sure, and its still pretty good on road, pic`s of Colorado would be nice, cheer`s

Yup, the 14/51 is right in between 13/47 and /48. That's why I picked it. I still need to maintain some road capability, or I would have went even further, like the OP did. Hopefully I'm pleased with it, but I can always change it. It's only money, right? :)

Here is a picture of our bikes on top of Cross Mtn. near Taylor Park CO. Love that alpine air.

Great to hear you're enjoying new trails with new gears! I ride 13/51 on trails in the Idaho high country and love it. No more 1st gear stalls (and code 30 falls) due to steep or tight trails. I can still easily do 65 MPH on the pavement, which is plenty fast for the occasional pavement I ride.

I went 13/48 and really like it so far, It'll still do 75 on the hwy and pulls the trails well.  I'll be in Ouray in a few weeks too, I just hope I went low enough for the mountains at altitude!

The 13/50's were perfect for what we were riding at 12,000ft and above. We did a lot of single track and got along great. Still had good hwy speed when we got on pavement, which was not often. The stator on my son's bike started to rattle in the last week, getting louder each day, so we parked it. Didn't want to get stranded on a mountain side miles from a road. Anyhow he finished the trip on my bike and I rode the RZR with my wife. Great trip!

If its the stator your son should be on the list for the recall, give the vin number to the local dealer and he can check.

We both had recall notices in the mail when we got home. His is in the shop now. I am not sure the rattle was the stator but time will tell. They have a lot of WRs in the shop in Springfield for the recall. I plan to take mine in when we pick his up.
