I ride on a 4-5 acre motocross track and sometimes ride some large open phosphate mines. The stock gearing of 13/48 was ok but I had problems powering through corners in 3rd gear at the track. Shifting down at every corner isn't easy going through sandy ruts and whoops. I put on a 50T rear and now it seems geared too low. 3rd gears now feels like 2nd. It's great through the corners but it winds out very fast and I have to shift to 5th gear on the straights and it's not even a very long straight! The tranny ratios are way too close in my opinion. Has anyone tried out something like 14/49 or 14/50 before? Thanks for any help.
