The best way I can describe it is this. Imagine a car with only one gear. 23/40 is like 1st gear. 25/38 is like 3rd gear. Now take off from a standstill. You are going to get off the line faster with the 23/40 but you will have more top end with the 25/38. It isn't a real good comparison because the sled has a variable ratio clutch, but it gives an idea.
On the 800's the chain is 15 wide.
Let me now ask you a few questions.
1. Have you ridden the sled how it sits currently?
2a. If #1 is yes, do you still want more bottom end like your original post?
2b. If #1 is no, then how do you know you want more bottom end?
3. What makes you think you need more bottom end?
