chain length and sprockets

I want to get a set of Sidewinder sprokets and the smart chain over the winter season (lol about a month now...) But what do I want?

I do:
Trail ride
Mud
light dunes (jumping)
Go very long straights
want a smooth acceleration

I dont:
Spend much time in the dunes
Hit the top of 5th very often
want a jerky setup.

Hope the above helps you guys understand what I do.

Thanks for any help!!!
-Chris

Self lubricating, Titanium rollers, and anti-stretch
As the chain warms up, their is a special lube that melts as it gets warmer.
and it holds up to 16,000 lbs. (overkill)

Thats a lot of chain. If you're keeping the bike stock for a while and not going with the big 3 like me I definitely recommend the 13t front sprocket and thats about it. She really rip then!

You guessed it!

13 tooth will help you if you do any technical climbs where you would have to crawl up or over something. For me it also put me in the "sweet spot" in the RPM range with grippy-horsepower robbing paddles.

You know what a smart chain is but not the big 3?

Intake
Exhaust
Tuner
