Never ridden dunes but i would say a 13T would be a waste of time and you would spend a lot more time shifting, Go for the 15T makes all the gears longer and uses the Raptors huge amount of bottom end and mid range :thumbsup:.

I ran 22'' haulers with my bolt on 700R with both the 14 and the 15 I would say if your running 22's stick with the 14 tooth front and launch in 2nd. If your bikes not pulling a 14 somethings up unless you weight like 230 and beyond.

Do you have any mods done? If so what?

I haven't weighted my stockers. My light weight 22'' haulers on .125 blue lables weight in at a whopping 10.3 LBS each. on my longacre race scales.

The .125's are only good for duning/hillshooting and no big air. I would not reccomend mounting the razors on them and MXin or trail riding you'll taco them pretty easy.

you will be clutching alot.... if you are talking about like the 1-4mph range. If I have to do that I sometimes just turn my idle up some so I dont have to feather the gas with the clutch all the time :thumbsup:

you think?! seems like the tires would absorb all the shock... :crazy:
Go ahead and give it a try, but you'll soon find out that them .125's don't hold up fer shit riding trails and won't take any kind of impact from rocks, roots etc.

I have them all 13,14, and 15t and for racing 300' I like the 13t the best, for just normal riding I like the 15t.

.125's are no good for anything but the dunes. On a trail, the first pot hole, rock, or log will bend them into a pretzel. The sidewall will only absorb so much...and even then it's sending the shock into the wheel one way or another.
.190 are the least you would want to run, and seem to be the standard. If it were me on my trails...I would look for even thicker wheels, or steel wheels.
