Yeah, there was an OEM sprocket with the rubber dampening ring on it. I think it was from a Kawi Z1000. Hit Big Daddy up. I think he was one of the folks who posted about them in my thread. I'm wanting to think that's what he went with on his.

As for a replacement chain... when it's time to replace the stocker I'll likely go with an EK brand 525MVXZ. Read LOTS of good feedback on EK's X Ring chains used on busas with power adders.

Since i was lame informing El Diablo about the OEM 03 Z1000 CS sprocket mod i'll let you know its an option to the aftermarket sprockets avail. It does contain the rubber damper just as our OEM did so now you've been duly notified.

Thanks for the info.... was doin some thread searchin and came up with a # finally....13144-1320.....probably be back-ordered or something and then when finally gets here itll be 15 degrees or something......as for the chain, wondering if you would give me some insight as to the difference in the 525 or 520 conversion....its an area i know little about but i hear most people that go with the 520 come back to the 525.....may sound like a newbie question but forgive my ignorance..

Try www.ronayers.com for the sprocket. I'd think if anyone had it they would. As for the difference between the two chain sizes, I couldn't explain it any better than EK does in their FAQ. CLICK HERE and it's the first question in the FAQ. The pop-up window with the "answer" is in red with white text... hard to read. If you highlight all of it with your mouse it's easier to read.

You have to change out both of the stock 525 sprockets for 520 size sprockets to even use the 520. Less strength and faster wear. I think the faster wear is why most folks come back. Unless you're racing for big money and need every single last horsepower you're just wastin' money droppin' to a 520 in my opinion. There's less loss of horsepower through the drive chain with a 520 but it's probably not much less. Maybe worth it for race guys but not for me on the street.
