Anyone running a 14 / 48 setup?

Just curious if anyone has tried this sprocket setup yet? Especially you off-road guys.

im runnin a 13/48 combo. and love everything about it except the top speed. which is ok cause we never really had much of a top speed. definitely an easy wheelie bike now and wicked accelleration. i will never go back to stock setup. freeway cruising is a little annoying because of the higher rps but totally worth it in my book. i smoke my r6 and gsxr friends more than ever before now except of course the straight lines of course

Thanks for the reply, yeah I was thinking a 13 front might be much since about 20 miles of my commute is on the slab. But I did want better gearing for the dirt roads and trails I want to explore.

I'm really liking this 14t front. I may hold off on the bigger rear sprocket.
