Default gearing question

have a 95 XLT SP, got a 136x2 track on it, in deep powder it cant get to the power band and is a bit lazy on normal trails. Gets up to about 5800 RPMS and stops in the deep. I had to go to a 7 tooth driver cog instead of the stock 8 tooth for clearance. Which gears should I get to get a little more low end out of it to get the RPMS up where they need to be? and where is a good place to get them online? appreciate any insight. If you need any more info let me know.

moving from an 8 tooth to the 7 tooth you have already lowered the gearing some from what you had. my 500 launches hard with the stock gearing. I just run out of topend.

I might be more incline to look at secondary clutching. drive belt thickness...
I'm loosing my mind, but as long as I keep the part that tells me when I gotta pee I should be OK.
