24/39 is stock low altitude. You could go with the high altitude gearing but you will lose top end. High alt gearing is 23/40

I have clutch kit, pipe, y-pipe, key. Maybe it would work? How is your top end?

You originally said you wanted more bottom end performance. The 26/41 will be worse on the bottom end than you stock gearing. It will get you more top speed, but acceleration getting there will suffer.

With a single pipe, Y pipe and Key you should be running similar numbers to a stock 900, and mine will rock top to bottom

would the 24/39 gears off zr 800 fit a 04f7?

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?
