You are not understanding what Jake said. Changing the sprockets is not going to change the overall gear spread. This gearing is either going to be shit on the road, or shit off road, you can't have both with a narrow gearbox.
Why are you so fixed on the TE? There are many better suited bikes for what you are trying to do.
