how much difference is there between 14/48 from the stock 13/48?

1 tooth on the counter sproket = 3 on the rear.
So 14/48 =13/45.
Always try to go up in the counter 1 st.

I run a 14/51 on a 450x...I would like to drop to a 48 on the rear. Do you guys find that to be a little too tall for the tight stuff? I mostly run open desert, but just curious about the "goat trail" type sections.

the key is that you dont want to take away too much of your low end. So what you should is buy a 14 and try that out and if you feel like you need some more up top and the low end feels good then drop a tooth or two down on the rear.

Just an FYI with my 6 speed and 511cc I run 14/48. I can top out at 103mph and its still pretty decent crawling. I mostly always start out in 2nd gear as 1st is too low or is that tall? LOL, but 1st does work awesome when I stop in sand and take off again. But I guess it all depends on what type of bike you have as in an R or X model, how many gears, engine size, etc. But a lot of good info has been offered on the site.

thats pretty tall harper...sounds like a street/enduro gearing.

try 14/48 and see how that feels. If you still need to space out your gears go down in the back to the 45.

That's the great thing about a CR250. You can lug it through the low speed stuff. I run 14/48 on mine, and it does fine. I've had it past 80mph. I don't know if a 15t will clear the case.
