07 ZX6R -1/+2 520 Chain question

Anybody recommend a brand? How about any of these?

http://www.solomotoparts.com/home.php?cat=430

Instead of an exhuast Id figure I get a lil more umph with gearing instead. Looking to -1/+2, this is a track only bike that I will occasionally hit the streets with when track season is closed. Or what gearing would you recommend that is best for MSRH, TWS (Texas World Speedway), GSS. Now i know that all 3 tracks have nothing in common and are different beasts but what would be a happy medium? Any info is appreciated

Those three tracks are very different, for TWS (Texas World Speedway) I would say only go -1 and stock rear. For MSRH -1 +1 or 2 seems fine and for GSS -1 +2 or 3 would be okay. A happy medium would be -1 +1.

That being said, I'd reccommend you to save your money and work on the basics right now. Like body position; corner speed and getting on the gas sooner. Once you've done several TDs, then start playing with the gearing.

If you are set in stone with changing gearing on your bike, take your bike to Sunny. He will hook you up.

We ran -1 on the front at all the CMRA tracks. And the stock chain is 520 already.

I can't argue with u there. No mod can compete with skill that I don't have yet but I had a hard time at GSS on which gear to pick in turns. 1st is just way to sensative and 2nd was to high. I used 2nd but rolling the throttle out of the corner just took too long the get the rpms up. So I wanted to change
the gearing to help
