I wanna do a 520 Conversion on my 2002 GSX-R1000 and I would like to know what sprocket size should I go for the front and rear?

for optimal settings on the 1000.
Go 44T in the rear and 17T in the front.
Basically just going up 2 teeth in the rear and leaving the front stock 17
you will still need to change the front sprocket to a 520 pitch
Trust me..you will love that setup

I dropped the front 1 and went up 2 in the rear on my 01.......would not suggest that for everyone. You should clean & lube the chain once per week and change the set every riding season with a 520 conversion.

i also did a -1, +2 520 conversion on my 03. i like it, but i lost too much top end, so i will be going with a +3 rear and stock tooth front this season.

go to www.sprocketcenter.com and get afam sprockets 17t front, 45t rear, and a 520 rk or d.i.d. chain. you will be very happy.

The real question we should be asking you is "what are you using this setup for?"
is it strickly for track use...or are you using it for street use also.
Track i would go with +3 in the rear and leave the front stock cause ultimately you want the best out the corners.
But if you using it for street too....try 44 in the rear and leave the front stock 17

I went with Sprocket Specialists 520's, with a DID ERV2 chain, its been great. People freaked around here when they heard what i did. " That's a friggin Motocross Chain, you're Nuts ! " but thats what you get from ******** and Hillbillys. LOL
Sorry forgot: up 2 in rear, also have a +3 this year I am gonna try.

For street set up.

Are Renthal Sprockets paired with did x-chain a good combo?
Marky...It really about personal preference but I would go with 44T 17T
That does wonders on the street..and if you decide to take it to the track..then you will still have a pretty good setup to start with.
As for the Renthal...pretty good sprocket but I like AFAM sprockets better...for some reason they hold up alot stronger/longer than the renthal...DID EVR2 chain is wut i run and its the shiznit.

afam sprockets will last longer, but the d.i.d. chain is good.
