I've read on Thumper Talk that the DRZ400 rear sprocket is a direct swap for the DRZ250, so that should open up the available parts to choose from.
My best advice would be to leave the rear sprocket as it is.
Best off going gown a tooth in the front easier to change as its held in by a circlip. Maybe even 2 teeth and flat stick it in second.
When I put a 12 tooth on mine it's top speed was about 85kmph but it climbed anything in second and third
That way you can change it easily before taking on the hills and switch it back over for the trip home
