What mrtazco said. I installed it, now I have no choice but to start out in 2nd gear if I'm racing anyone. I might change the rear so it's not so radical of a change. I don't ride in the dunes, so I don't think I need that drastic of a change.

I also wanted more low end. I went to a 13 in the front and 38 rear. Boy what a difference. Wakes up the low end, 2nd gear starts are no problem and the front end reaches for the sky. Got them from Sprocket Specialist, cost about $60 total for both with shipping. Don't waste your money on the sidewinder sprokets. Get them from Sprocket Specialist much cheaper and they appear to be hanging out just fine.

I had the same question not too long ago. You might want to think about a different carb. The slide on the stock carb is vaccum'ed operated.

If you want a quicker responding bottom end, you may want to consider a carb that has a mechanically controlled slide. BUT!!, if you chose to do so, you run the chance of your machine "wheeling" too much.....just like a mod'ed 400EX.

Hope this helps...if not, no harm done. :))

Hey guy's I just order a 13 tooth sproket from the local honda store. They had a sproket for a honda xr650l dirtbike but I had to get a aftermarket 13 tooth that fit it. I hope this one will fit, everybody is saying on here that it will. Does anybody know that I did the right thing????????

I got mine throught sprocket specialist. I personally don't like it. I'm going back to a 14 I think, either that or I'm going to have to change the rear. I bounch off the rev limiter about 3/5th the way down the track. I can see why people that ride the dunes might like it, but where I ride, there is just too many wide open areas to loose that much top end on the bike.
