I have to replace my bent axle. So I was thinking while I have it apart should I relace the rear sprocket and if so should I stay stock or change the teeth to a Lower or higher count? What will this do for me if anything? I ride mostly trails with some dunes.
New chain too if so what size and what brand is best?

If your gonna change the rear do the front too do them as a set cause if the rear is worn the front is too i would do the chain also a good o or x ring chain will be good for you. The stock gearing works really well on most levels of hp but if you want to change it its your bike. I would do the front vs the rear sprocket though its easier to change, a 13 tooth will give you more tq but shorten your gears a 15 tooth will have a less tq but lengthen your gears more top end

i had a 13t on mine and i was shifting alot!!! and it was just reving out so fast i couldn't really get good traction. went back to a 14t and from the very limited riding i have done, it seemed to help. BUT i haven't gotten out onto the trails yet with my new build.

I have a 13t on mine right now and I love it. Yea you have to shitft a lot but it makes things interesting instead of lugging in any gear I want lol. 13t and a good set of tires that hook up well in the dirl means a lot of fun lol
