Blue Ridge Trail

A few weeks back, 3 days riding the BRT. The DRZ is perfect for this type of riding

Open forest roads

I don't know, sure hope it will, but everything is charred up, and they closed down TONS of trails because of it,

This is while it was burning,

I currently have 2000 DRZE 400E. I am running 15 45 sprockets only because that is what the previous owner had. I am overall happy as it matches most of my riding but it is time to replace them. I would like to go 14 and 15 by 45. That way I can just swap front sprockets for the couple of times I am doing gnarly stuff.

The question is, will one chain length cover both options? If so would it be 112 link ?

I have searched but did not find an answer to this specific question probably my poor searching skills.

TIA

Real shame but I guess your BBQ will taste smoky for a while

Shined up the DRZ yesterday and threw the street wheels back on. Also trying out the Wolfman Medium Duffle on the nomadic cycle rack (aka Ebay rack)



its much easier to keep it clean and running when i have my KTM200 to flog in the woods The DRZ's next major ride will be westfest

It will also cover you for 14/47 and 15/47 if you ever feel inclined.
I really keep debating. I end up doing mostly gravel roads and two track. I have to go on the highway quite a bit so 65 is required more than I like.

But I go to Moab once a year and do an off road hare scramble that is really challenging with my current gearing.

I run 15-47 and 15-48 (I got 2 set of wheels) When I run 15-47 I cruise at 75mph all day long on black top with no problem. The motor still at comfortable rev when I am at that speed.
