What I'm wanting to know is, which sprockets would You run on a stock 450. I'm looking to have adequate power, but not a Stump Puller, you know? I'd like to be able to cruise without hitting any more Rpm than necessary. So, I'm wondering what size sprockets you all are running and what kind of power vs speed you are experiencing?

Bill, I'd keep the stock rear, and run a 17 up front..... Steve

I'd have to agree with Steve.
That's what I'm running on my recent project (17/35) - less buzz at speed, and I didn't notice any loss of gruntage at all.
Of course the bike has 185 pounds of compression, so......

Darn it, let me amend my last post - I keep forgetting about the CB400T rear Comstar I transplanted on this 450.

It has a 37-tooth rear sprocket, so I'm running 17/37 - that's equivalent to about a 16/35.

Sorry - my bad......

Appreciate that Steve, I was only aware of the 15 & 16t countershaft sprockets for the 450 and didn't know about the 17 until I read about it while ago. Yeah, I'm wanting yo be able to have sufficient power, but let the revs drop some when I get into 5th gear and that should do the trick alright. :cool:

Thanks again, Bill ;)
