i alreadey did a search, and didnt really come to a solid conclusion. i see this "520" conversion yet i find out you can keep the stock gearing with a "520" soim a lil confused...

i was thinking of going w/ a +2 in the rear justt for some better off the line performance, i'm just seeing what the concensous (sp?) is for a 750 GSX-R...

opinions? feedback?

whats a good chain and sprocket CO. to go with?

520 is physically smaller. Easy to visualize example would be compare your chain to a bicycle chain and sprockets, you can still get any diameter sprockets you could with the bigger width.

Since its smaller you get less rotational wieght and a little less physical weight. The drawback is going to be they ware out faster, chain and sprockets, especially with our heavier bikes and if you like to put it on 1 wheel alot.

I ordered a DID 530 chain, 14 tooth front, and 46 tooth rear sprocket for my 1100 from Sprocket Specialists. I was very happy with their service. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

I know it may be too late, but you are better off making all of your changes to the rear sprocket. If you drop a tooth in the front, you make the chain turn a tighter. That will make it wear faster.
Changing +3 in the back will get the same results as -1 in the front.

The 530 chain is a little larger than the 520. The weight difference for anything other than all out racing in not even noticable. Go with the 530.
