Question Sprocket and Chain

Gonna need to upgrade chain and sprocket on the 2016 zx10r KRT. In discussions with my mech he suggests -1 up front and +1 on rear sprockets (520 setup). I have always gone with a bi-metal setup in the past, any thoughts??

Never used the bi metal sprockets but always liked the idea. If you're really looking for a good time make it +2 in the rear and hold the F on.

LDH has written an article on gearing for the zx-1or with a small paragraph about the Superspox products...

ROGUE RACING ZX-10R Gearing/Sprockets Page

Damn good information there!

Pretty popular setup is -1 , +2 all depending what you are looking for specifically.

Bi-metal.....yeah, the supersprox suck. If you're doing a show-bike, great. Otherwise go with a quality aluminum or steel sprocket.

And the 520 conversion should be for a track/race bike. If it's going to live on the street, then stick with the 525 size. My $0.02.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I had a 525 setup on my CBR.... -1 and +2....top end did suffer, but how often do you really get to go full throttle? Otherwise everything in between clicked....may try -1 and +1 first, steel front, aluminum rear.

I pin the throttle any chance I get, but the front end will come up a good bit easier. Personally I prefer the low end as I don't find myself ever doing high speed runs or from what I read you do not really need a lot of top end for the track.

+2 rear you will need 2 links longer chain. stock is 114 but will be too tight. For sprockets check out for either 525 or 520. weighs a little more than aluminum but is steel and looks awesome. I have +1 now but will be going to a +2 520 setup soon.

I read the link provided by Duhastme and it was very interesting and informative. According to that article -1/+1 is plenty for the 2016 zx10r so I will prob go with that first, AFAM hard anodized aluminum rear and steel in front in a 520 format which should be as durable as a 525. I will let you guys know how that works out.
