what size driver or freewheel do you have now? just count the teeth if you are not sure.

if you have a new, stock F2, it should have a 13t freewheel. a 36-13 is a "normal" gear ratio for a bmx bike. if you get something smaller than a 36t sprocket, you will mess up the gear ratio, which i would not recommend doing. read about gear ratios here- http://www.bmx-forum.com/showthread.php?t=48475

if you want to get a smaller sprocket and keep the same gear ratio (which i highly recommend), you need to get a cassette hub with a smaller driver. you cannot get a worthwhile freewheel smaller than 13t for your wheel. (DK made a 12t freewheel but it was garbage, don't even try to get one). read about cassette hubs here- http://www.bmx-forum.com/showthread.php?t=74764

common smaller gear ratios are 33-12, 30-11, 28-10, 25-9, 23-8. i would stick with a 28-10 or 30-11.
