Your stock gearing is 14/38. The 15T is a popular mod and works great on a stock or 3mod raptor... Its alot easier to swap front sprockets, then rears.... Your gearing really depends on what terrain you are riding. I ride dunes but will often switch gearing depending on what dune location I am riding at. Also tire size will come into play when deciding upon gearing...

I have 14/15/16 up fronts and 36/37/38/39 reaprs so I can try endless combos...

Check out this chart for geraing ratios:

My stock chain is starting to get some rust on it...I was told that when changind the sprockets, its best to do both and the chain all at the same time, i was looking at the sidewinder package, anything better then that?

Sidewinders are great, just very expensive. It is a good idea to do the chain with the sprockets so they can wear together equally....

I like the quality or Renthal personally. I tend to order them myself when given a choice.

The best chain I have ever used is the RK GB520GXW. Its Gold and is the XW ring. It is rated for 1000cc's and the tensile strength is 8800 lbs. I have had mine now for 6 years on my built 660. Its never stretched.

Good info right there. I'll have to check out the RKs next time around. I've always passed them by for the Renthals just due to name recognition and I have never heard of anyone running them...

I think ive decided on the ti II sprockets from sidewinder,paired up with the smart chain, although the prices are a bit steep you cant beat a lifetime warranty, thanks for all the help!!
