I just bought a 520 conversion kit for my Gen 4 and was curious to see if anyone else has done the same to their Gen 4? I went -1 in the front and stock on the rear. The rear sprocket is aluminum which worries me due to the HP of the bike and the torque on an aluminum sprocket. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Don

All good it will just wear quicker keep a closer eye on the chain stretch and you'll be fine.

My Gen 4 came with the 520 kit, 16-41, Vortex. I can't use it for the class I'm racing, not allowed, so I'm selling these , less than 1000 street miles, good shape. $50 shipped.

Well Rode the bike for the first time yesterday. I was worried how abrupt it would feel,but it feels alot smoother and more acceleration. Beemers better look out.

Thanks to everyone's for your responses and advice.
