I really am not noticing a tremendous amount more low end grunt even with the much bigger rear but overall I like the gearing and would run it again. I would have to look at the number of links I am running but I recall it is more than Rocky Mountain suggested for that sprocket combo... I think it is 114. I ordered the next chain size down based on their suggestion and it was too short.
Thanks for the info.

I'm not seeing a 14-tooth Primary Drive sprocket under WRR parts, but I did find it under ATV parts (link). Is that what you're running?

No reason to go with the 14T, IMO.

Doesn't protect the slider and the bigger sprockets and longer chain are heavier and will sap precious HP from the little bike.

Whoops my bad, the sprockets are SuperSprox:

Supersprox Front Sprocket 14 Tooth - 2008 Yamaha WR250X
Part # 1246040032

Just looked at my order hx.

I'm with Meefzah. I went with the least expensive 14t (Supersprox) front but a 48 rear and a 112 link chain from RMATV. That works fine for me.

What I run on the WR:

47 tooth rear- 1022350055
13 tooth front- 1021470103
110 link chain- 1021250015
Spare master link- 1021250021

All that comes in under $100 so you'll "have" to buy something else to get over the free shipping threshold.
Another vote for this set up. I have the same everything.

I just bought new sprockets from RM last week they are out of 47 tooth so I went with the 48. I bought a 114 link but I had to cut it I think the 112 link will work. Maybe even a 110 link?

I guess that proves that less IS indeed more. Does the $1k profit include selling off the stock parts? Or will that be even more icing on the cake?

Most all of them are that way. Alan's has lived a long time with a fuel bottle in it, but I cannot keep one mounted on those plastic tabs when it's loaded with tools. I used stainless exhaust band clamps on my KLR and it held up quite well. I think i finally broke that one when I dropped it directly on a rock.

Pretty much any tractor dealer or TSC has them for the same or lower price.


I can get these designed for dune buggies for around $40 if you want to really upgrade. 10" long and 3/12" around, comes with a bolt on flange or a 1 1/2" tube clamp. Made from billet aluminum.

Shows how my mind works, I was thinking he took the flat black version and turned it into the stock looking version, because, in my mind at least, the top one is worth a whole lot more than the bottom one.....
