Some of you may wonder why 16/50....I pull stumps with my KTM in my spare time!
No, but the fire roads I ride can get really rough, so being able to ride more like a trials bike would be a plus.
I dont ride rough fire roads etc,but i run 16/47 on my 950 adv and it makes the bike easier to steer on corners on open types of dirt roads etc,16/50 would be great also.

Andi,
I found for normal riding 2-up a 16/45 does really well. You can still run a 120, but with the adjustment plates need to be flipped around.
