several hundred miles later

Changed the oil and filter after about 300ish mile since the re-build. So far everything seems good. The power feels the same, if not better, but a new chain would account for that.

If so, the easy choice is a DRZ400. With your size you could go with a 650, but if you are keeping the Street bike go with a better dirt machine the DRZ. Easy to find used, reasonably priced too......

let's start with gearing

you did not mention your weight. Me, I am 5'10" 30" inseam 215lbs, and for all around riding 14-49 gearing is great, 13-49 is just too low for lots of on-road (great off).

WR250r in sand gearing matters

The WRr with the high rev'ing motor it has works best with lower gearing than stock. This holds true for sand.
