On the TMX 100 I had there were two rear sprockets on the rear wheel.  You could remove four bolts holding the two sprockets together, move the larger sprocket in line with the chain and reattach it to the smaller "highway" sprocket giving you a higher chain ratio for off road use.  The took kit had a short section of chain which could be added to make up the difference in sprocket diameter.  A cheap but effective way to change gearing.  I believe the details are in the owner's manual.

I used to ride the TMX to classes during the week, change sprockets and race on weekends.  Fun bike!
