Hi all. I am currently running the standard gearing on mt 2007 GSXR 600. (16 / 43 / 525 Chain)
I want to change the front sprocket to a 15 tooth and I am just wondering should I go down to a 520 chain due to there being one less tooth?
any help appreciated.
Thanks

525 and 520 refer to chain pitch. They are not compatible with each other. 520 chain requires 520 sprockets and vice versa. A complete 520 swap would save a few pounds and make your bike accelerate a tiny bit faster. Mostly a racer mod IMO. 525 is fine for street only bikes.
