Help with sprocket conversion

I bought all the pieces for a 520 conversion for my R6(front and rear sprocket and chain) and i would just get it put on but im the sort of person who likes to do it himself or at least help and learn so i know how to do it for next time or if i ever need to do it in a bind.

Would anyone with the tools and know-how like to give me a hand doing this?


I would be willing to compensate you for the time and tools ( beer, food, whatever)

thanks!!!

If ur semi mechanically inclined you can do it urself, the hardest part is getting the chain length right. Remember it's better to cut it too long and then take another link out if need be.. If you know how to change ur rear tire urself then rear sprocket is a cinch. The front one isn't that difficult either. Like I said, finding the master link, breaking the chain, and installing ur new one to correct length is the hardest part. Good luck, hopefully someone will lend a hand.
