Just bought a new 500 exc. 45 is standard rear tooth. Anyone have experience with sizes 51 through 48 as to low and high end performance? I expect to change out when using mostly for street (45) and full dirt ( ? ). Thanks!

If it is mostly on the street then leave your stock gearing. If you are riding a lot of tight single track then drop a nice big sprocket on the back so you're not constantly stalling or wearing out your clutch. My $0.02 as have left stock gearing and find I'm always on the clutch riding single track and never have the thing doing 130km/h through the dirt
