Drive Line - Performance Gearing set up (14/51)
By changing the gearing (taller gearing) from a 14/50 to a 14/51 setup this will allow the bike to accelerate stronger pull out of the corners harder and stay in the powerband. With this type of gearing setup, it will also allow you to easily click up a gear for clearing that tabletop or going through a set of whoops. When you are able to click up a gear it allows the bike to pull harder and also smoother, with out bogging.
