74 DT360 Sprocket Advice was created by beerens20

Getting ready to put my 360 back together and am hoping for some advice or direction.  The current sprocket setup is 12 teeth in the front and 44 in the rear.  In 5th gear to maintain 45-50mph on surface streets I'm way up in the rpm where the bike is screaming at me.  I would ideally like to be able to ride 50-55 in 5th at like 3k rpm. 

I was thinking of trying a 14 in the front keeping the 44 in the rear.  Anyone else have experience with what setup would let me get a bit more top end speed at 3k?

I have 16 tooth on my RT3 regular riders.
The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

12/44 = 5500RPM = 55MPH
16/44 = 4200RPM = 55MPH
16/39 = 3700RPM = 55MPH, dont go taller gearing than this, its too "chunky" feeling to take off from a stop.

I ran a 16t front on mine and LOVED it. I could run 55-60mph at around 3500 rpm. Just at the beginning of where it really ran nice.

Correction, I was at about 4500 rpm at that speed. But nevertheless. Great gearing for that bike.
