We ride the Trees a lot and a suggestion has been given about down gearing it abit. Have any of you done this, The Stock gearing seems to be 19 upper 50lower 90pitch 13wide chain.
Thoughts?

yes gear up 20/50 is a good place even like 20/49 but if you do a lot of long pulls the belt likes the 20/50 better

take a look here https://www.babbittsonline.com/oempa...ile_2017/parts

M8000s with the SKU numbers ending in 'USB' have 21/49 gearing.
weird.
I thought all 2017s were 21/49 but apparently not.
my buddy has one that seems to pull hard as my mountain cat until it gets stupid steep. his must be 21/49.
anyway I wouldn't go lower than 19/50 with the 7 tooths. kinda giving up your pull when the trees widen out.

8 tooth for the 2.6 track and for the Mtn Cat 3" track and dropped chain case.

My '17 MC 8 tooth, 3" seems geared perfectly. I am a big guy and ride 10,000 feet and up.
