hahaha nice, ive always wondered what changing the gearing would be like. im going to get some for the track to run different set ups but for the street w my mods i like the stock gearing but 520 coversion did a lot on its own.

If its too nuts, just get a stock front sprocket for $20, and leave it as +2 in the rear

Yep, -1 +2 rocks. The speedo jumps in 20mph increments because it can't keep up.. Just make sure you let the tire fully warm up before you go WOT in 1st or 2nd gear cause it will break loose.

when changing the gears do you have to buy a different chain or does the chain not matter?

How did changing to a 520 do anything if you didnt change gearing? 520 is just a thinner chain that weighs slightly less

Bigcat yes it is best to change your chain with your sprockets, unless they have fairly low miles, you also need to make sure the chain pitch matches the sprockets.


RDLYN, +1. I will literally guarantee you will not notice any difference between a 525 and a 520 conversion, its all in your mind.

i have -1/0 right now and i can barely notice a difference, I'm thinking about switching back to stock this summer since i mostly only do top end runs.

I used to run that ratio, but changed to just -1 in the front stock rear. I thought it was too jumpy and i dont need that much help to do a wheelie.
