Squeeze your brake lever and tie it to the clipon. Let it sit overnight and they'll be supertight by morning.

2 down in the front for street riding may be extream, the sharp angle wears chain fast, and gives possiblity of chain break. chain break=motor breakage usually.

Are you replacing your chain? Going +2 in the back and leaving the front stock will shorten your chain.

What is the reason for the 520 conversion? Is it for more acceleration?
I really dont see the need for it.

sprockets make the biggest difference then any other performance thing you buy exhaust, pcm, airfilter, all that shyt. gearing your bike right can make all the difference old bike or not, my f4i pulled these 05 600's all day, 1 down 2 up is usualy what people go to, someone pointed something to me a while back, when i asked the question of how much topspeed id lose, some 600's topped out wont touch the red in 6th they might be a 1000 rpm behind or something, with the new gearing they will. and when i swapped my sprockets, i couldnt really tell the difference in my top speed, besides, who does 150+ around here on a regular basis anyways.
