I'm not doing it to compete with your bike. I notice that when I ride off road I run the crap out of 1st gear because my bike tends to bog down in second and loses momentum. I need to have more throttle response out of the corners and feel this is a great way to do it. I was comparing the two bikes. I believe your bike is 13/43. The CRF 250l is currently 14/40. I've heard of people just changing the front so it is 13/40 this way you keep the top speeds up. I've looked into it. I'm probably going to go 13/42 this seems like a good fit and a cheap fix too. Is this an easy process to change these out? Maybe we can do a before and after to see how much it improved the performance off the line.
