520 conversion talk

Hey all,

I want to do a 520 conversion w/ a 48 rear sprocket.

I intensely dislike the look of the vortex sprockets. I do enjoy the aesthetics of the sprocketspecialties lines, but on their website they don't seem to list a 48t 520 conversion sprocket, merely the stock 525 replacement pieces.

So, what other good looking brands that are good quality can I look at? Suggestions are welcome.

In addition, what brand of chain and features should I be looking to get. I've heard good things about RK. Anyone disagree?

Cheers

So I guess you plan on riding on one wheel most the time. That's one big sprocket. Like ballsup said try AFAM, Renthal or Sunstar.
Never have heard anything bad about D.I.D. chains.

AFAM were good for me in the past. they look nice as well

Kip: Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.
Pedro: Yes. I don't understand... they say you're not allowed to have pinatas that look like real people, but in Mexico, we do it all the time.
Pedro: Vote for me, and all your wildest dreams will come true.

I doubt you'll find a 48t from any manufacture, however sprocketspecialties will make custom one off sprockets and perhaps thats your ticket.

As mentioned AFAM & Renthal are both top quality components. DID & EK chains get the

For someone that isn't aware i can understand your WTF!! other models cross over to the 10r.........and thats fairly standard for other models as well. A call to them will reveal more info.

The 96-99 zx-750r/rr & 91-93 zr750 zephyr CS sprockets fit the 10r afam part# 28401
The 98-02 zx-6r rear sprocket fits the 10r afam part # 17610H
