13 tooth front sprocket

Anybody running the 13 tooth front sprocket instead of the stock 14 on an outlaw 525 IRS? I hardly ever get into and stay in 5th gear. Basically I ride a lot of trails and very little top speed runs. Where I ride there's really never a reason to go 60 plus. So does that one tooth make a big difference when slow trail riding and does anybody know what the top speed difference is just because I'm curious.

Any information of changing sprockets is gladly appreciated really!

Thanks!

Welcome aboard!

Remind me what your stock gears are, front and rear?

Rule of thumb is changing 1 tooth is the front is a 7mph change. So 1 tooth smaller should be 7mph slower. Changing 3 teeth on the rear is roughly the same as 1 on the front, so if you try it and its too low, try one or two teeth in the rear. I used to drop a tooth on my predator for woods riding, the change is fantastic! Way more usable low end power. Will lift the wheels easily (or spin a lot It kinda makes first gear a granny gear, but 2-4 are more usable!

I believe the rear sprocket is 38 I think... And the front is a 14 stock.

Shakin that's very interesting! 7 mph is quite a bit, but I really don't need to top out 5th in tight woods! The only negative that I've had about the outlaw was that first seemed a little fast/tall when going through the tighter areas or under fallen trees and such. Two more questions... Will the chain have to be shortened or anything weird like that? Also does the atv accelerate noticbly faster overall or is it just right out of the hole torque?

Im not sure how the adjustment works on an outlaw, on my predator I did NOT need to shorten the chain. It seems to have a lot more torque when you drop a tooth.

Alright! Very cool! Is there any brands that I should avoid when buying a new sprocket? Or brands that you would recommend?
