22/40 and you can use stock chain, should give you some more low end grunt, however my 600 fusion with stock gearing will do that because I spent alot of time getting the air and fuel and timing pretty much perfected. I don't have to stand on the back of the sled to do it either and I'm running an 1 1/4 rip

The ability to make a sled stand up isn't acheived just by putting lower gearing in it requires suspension changes that make the sled a POS to trail ride.Pull the RRSS right out,springs on low that sorta thing.Again kiss your fast trail riding good bye

If you have an iqr, then you should know what would make it stand up....I just did gearing to mine and I have to disagree with HSR, the ability to get it to stand straight up with only gearing, is def achievable.

I don't care if you geared it 3:1 if your suspension isn't set up for it it WILL NOT stand up on end.Put your RRSS on high for the most coupling and see what happens.He isn't talking about an IQr.

I did not have to set up my suspension to do wheelies, it is set up for trail riding but it has enough snort now that if you stand up and pull back when you punch it, it will stand straight on end, if I'm sitting on it in the rider forward position it launches hard and just dangles the skis, if you know how to ride and you have enough hp you can get it to stand up. I have the springs set hard and coupling blocks in and the straps in stock position, I can stand it up at will.

I got a 1.5 oem, 22/40 gearing, limiters all the way out, torsions on medium, whats that likely hood of getting her to kiss the sky?
