13/52 or 14/52 on 2013 450 exc

Hi all,
just curious on what everyone is running in terms of sprockets. I had a 2006 450 exc and found 14/52 to be a great balance between speed on open trails and low range for hill climbs and single trail. I just bought the 2013 450 exc and the shop fitted a 13 tooth on the front as part of the derestriction process. I find this to be a bit low, so have fitted the 14 back on. The rear is a 52. What is everyone else using??
John

Like you I had 14/52 on my 07 450 exc and now I am on a 2012 450 exc.
Had 13/52 when I brought it but i just put 14/52 on it and it seems to be alot better suited.

Don't forget the newer ones are running 6 speed gearbags and the Primary Ratios have changed to (32:76) i beleave. All this will make a difference compared to the older models.
