Anyone know we’re to locate 13 tooth front sprocket or rear sprocket 57 or 58 tooth? Been searching to normal places and can’t seem to be having any luck. Thank you

Here is a source for front sprockets 12 to 15 teeth (steel),

and rear sprockets 28 to 60 teeth (aluminum).

I’d be a bit careful about the 13 tooth option, the bend seems a bit tight to me, not to mention the increased wear

Far better to play with rear sprocket ratios …..

The 13 tooth does come with increased wear and the need to remove cover with it's associated issues of output shaft seal and bearing , often a new gasket and risk of wire pinching. However gives a bit over 7% change to final drive ratio. The very affordable and locatable 55 tooth gives a 10% change compared to a stock 50. I do both with 13x55 but this is partially offset by a larger diameter, heavier ATV tire.

I am in process of switching my sprockets both out. Currently it was supposed to have a 60 rear [turned out to be 55] and 14 front. This made street riding feel like engine was going to self destruct running around local streets. My local streets have 50 mph speed limit. Engine seemed wound out at 45 mph. I am switching front sprocket to a 15 in order to maybe get me to a top COMFORTABLE engine speed of 50/55 mph.
For anyone interested chain count on:
14 front 55 rear is 124.
15 front 55 rear is 126.

I would change the rear back to a 50T. 15/50 seems to be good for street with still enough torque for off road.

14/50=3:57 gear ratio STOCK
15/50=3:33 a little higher than stock and a little less torque.
15/55=3:66 a little lower than stock and a little more torque.
14/55=3:93 quite a bit lower than stock and more torque [but screams at 45 mph.]

Get a tachometer.

Assuming the redline is 9500, I will run my TW at 8800 rpm and do it all day long. Just over 60mph according to the TW speedo. BTW, 14/55 sprockets.

Cheap tachometers on ebay and very easy to install.

True dat. Ive ran 12 tooth on the front and it does wear faster but really improves the trail worthiness of it coupled with 55 rear. This gives you a resonable top speed of 35 mph maybe. Its a cheap part so I change it often and stay happy. The wear in my opinion is mostly a function of how much chain stretch you tolerate rather than amount of dirt or number of teeth. Ive answered this question for myself with a micrometer which was really interesting.
