Wide: i use 16-46 for my roadwheels (equal to the 15-43 you think about), seems like a nice compromise if you dont do much technial offroad, and find yourself more on the streets and open roads. The gap from 1st to 2nd seems a bit longer tho', but nothing too big of a problem :)
Cheers Jens I did read your post on the Tenere forum and guessed you would answer. The bike is pretty good on the 15/45 but its just a touch slow on the road when you want to go a bit quicker for a couple of hours. I used to do this stuff on my XR400 but goin with a smaller rear sprocket to give a pleasant road speed and then swapping the front over was nice and easy and gave good off road gearing. Mind the Honda front sprocket could be changed in 5 mins with x2 10mm bolts, Im not so sure the XT is so quick
