I love my 13 tooth...I highly suggest goin for it, the Renthal 13 tooth only costs 20 bucks, so even if you don't like it, no big loss!

I think I'm going to have to give it a try. Even with the HRC kit installed, 1st gear is just too high for the type of riding I do.

Jeez...ended up costing me big bucks. I couldn't find anyone who has 'em in stock except Sidewinder. $50 for a Titanium sprocket, plus about $20 to get it in time for my next trip.

you wont ever have to replace it for as long as you own your quad.... or as long as your quad is still running........


I have put mine though HELL and Back and they just laugh at me..... :D

Yep, have to agree on Sidewinder. I had the ti-moly setup on my KFX400 for 6 months, no noticable wear. Front sprocket just looked slightly polished where the chain ran.

However, they aren't indestrucable, as my buddy found out. A rivet that held his chain guide to the swingarm skid came loose, started running against the chain, and ruined it. :( No chain can take that for long...

Oops, I forgot about the topic of this thread! I'm still running the stock 14T, haven't been able to make a decision yet. I haven't had it to the track yet, which will help me decide. However, as I'm getting more comfortable with the quad, I'm finding the 14T gets better and better the faster you go. And the other day on the trails, I was wide-open in 5th a couple of times :D, and a 13T wouldn't help that much... Still I'd like to try both. B)

P.S. I'll vote after I try them both!

i run the 14 tooth with a 39 tooth rear and it seem to do good like that. the 13t front shortened up 2nd and 3rd to much for my liking.

400EX and CRF450R front sprockets will work -- there should be no trouble finding either of them if you need to.

Which to use? Depends on your style, your riding area, and your setup.

If you feel the gearing is too tall, then the decision is a no brainer - gear down.

If you add some mods, like intake, exhaust and cam,
, You won't need a 13 tooth

14T seems too high for Glamis with the few mods I have, so I put on a 13T.

I want a 13t, but the shops in my area are a little behind the 450r game. For some reason Washington has a HUGE KTM following. Every shop has some sort of KTM stuff in it. I will have to crack my piggy bank and get one off the net. When I start my payments i will not be able to afford anything other mods for awhile.

You just need to come down to the Cycle Barn in Smokey point or Everett Powersports in Everett. I got mine in Everett, when I first bought the bike. I work at NOPF and can probably get you one. My email is [email protected].
