Correct, any 600 to 750s' use 520 to 525 usually. 1000cc really dont wanna use anything less then 530. U may of gotten a 520 sprocket and 525 chain or vice/verse.

no and you really don't need a 525 chain its heavier, get a new sprocket its cheaper and your doing over kill on the chain. Chains(good ones) ain't cheap

hmmm lemme see I changed my chain bout 5000 miles ago, changed my sprocket about 7000 miles ago cause the previous chain ate me aluminum sprocket and I gota steel, both my sprockets are good and so is my chain, I originally changed the chain/sprocket about 10 to 11 thousand ago. yes they are usually changed together but not always, I tend to go thru chains and sprockets due to my style of riding and I rarely change them at the same time and even when I do they last about 7 to 10 thousand miles but I'm running a heavier chain now too

oh and i45 stunned you ain't done it all I promise you you ain't done it all, probably not even half

What they said above.

Use quality, steel sprockets and a new chain. Also make sure you get the correct amount of links. why were you changing the rear sprocket? Plus sizing?

ya i dont know how i did either
hey chris, i got the new seal on but cant seem to get it to go back down into the inner part of the outer tube. it gets caught at the top and cant get it to get back down to seat with the washer and bushing at the lower part of the fork. I dont have a seal driver and cant find anything to get it down.

You really need the right size seal driver to seat it
