Cool 400ex chain/ sprocket sets

I was looking at RockymountainATV.com and noticed several chain/ sprocket sets ... I found that there is an Xring chain that is supposed to be awesome becase it reduces friction ... that's all well and good and what not ... but I'm curious as to what sprocket combo is best and what does what and ... well, I'm clueless ... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

It really depends on what type of riding you do for the gearing. I almost always use an o-ring chain for flexability and overall performance in the long haul. Tell me what kind of riding you do and maybe we can find a sprocket set that fits your needs.

Typically from stock numbers, the higher drive sprocket number and lower driven sprocket will give the speed you are looking for.
Drive: Front Sprocket
Driven: Rear sproket

My 400

there are 2 main factors you have to watch when dropping or adding teeth on your sprocket size. the first is your tire size. the stock 400ex tire size in the rear is 20x10x9, which is perfect for the 15t sprocket. if you have bigger tire size like 21x10 or 22x9 you will loose bottom end and gain top end. Tires are a way of dropping teethor adding teeth. each inch added to your stock size is the same as adding a tooth on your front sprocket. you have to drop front sprocket size when buying bigger tires.
