Sprocket sizes ?

The manual says my 05' EXC came with 13:50t and the non-US models came with 13:40t

Good to hear the upgrades worked for you.

What's different about the new piston? Is it the same size, but increased compression?

Let us know how the 16t sprocket works.

The 4.60 width is nice if you want a wider tire, or the 4.10 would be fine if you like a narrower tire.

I ran a 4.60 and liked it.
