450 exc gearing

Post by curl666 on Sat Jun 17, 2017 8:30 am

Just wondering what gearing fellow 450 exc riders are running?

I found the ktm had to be in first gear yesterday for some of the hill climbs, going into second gear the power seemed to only be up at high revs, which was ok if you had a longer run up.

I'll have a check later on. I've got a few sprockets in the garage to swap. Trying to find a 18inch wheel, currently on a 19inch rear. Sad

Its running 14/48 with a 19inch rear wheel.

Why do mx bikes use a 19inch rear?

Is it something to do with a bigger wheel being harder to spin so more grip of the start?
