I'm sure the Terra hubs are right out of the F650 parts bin, but are all of these variations with different bolt spacing or hole diameter? Inquiring minds want to know. I want to go up to 50 on the rear for a little more slow speed control without slipping the clutch. I never know when I might want to get foolish on some trail that I shouldn't be on. Want to leave the large 16T countershaft sprocket alone. Big is good!
Supersprox all the way, blaisew! Don't select on your own, call them on the phone. They will make a sprocket specific for your bike, even if they don't have it listed. I had them make a me a custom 45 tooth rear sprocket for my F800GS to get the gearing setup right where I wanted it. They charged me a little extra....$50 maybe, I forget.....and it's a work of art.

Best way to go, for sure. I'll definitely switch to Supersprox when I wear down the stocker a good bit.
