EK o or x ring, rivit type link, and steel sprockets are my advice. -1 front for more roll on power. You probably get plenty of life from aluminum though.

With a -1 up front, will I see more RPM's and less speed?

Yes, -1 on the front will yield more RPM at a given speed, or less speed at the same RPM.

Did your bike come with 530? I am guessing it did not.

I have sunstar steel sprockets with -1 on the front. I don't remember the chain brand, but it's just your standard 520 O-ring with a master clip.
I like the -1 and will go with the same gearing once it needs replacing.

No sir. The first chain went rather quickly because of (*cough bad advice on chain maintenance cough*).

Any suggestions about this combo? http://www.motosport.com/motorcycle/...VER/?id=107173

exactly what spec chain is that????
rear sprocket is junk for what you have in mind

this is what you need for crying out loud,
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/D-I-D...Q5fAccessories
that's a mans chain
like buying a chevy V8 surburban to go grocery shopping ie. you aint going to break it anytime soon
Get some steel JTs sprockets from your local dealer.
-1 on the front gives you more acceleration at the expense of top end and fuel economy but you don't need it.
Like driving your V8 in 1
hope the translation helped

I have oem-tooth sunstar sprockets front and rear, both steel, and a DID (or rk? ) gold chain, 520. So far so good..had it for 5000mi now, installed at the dealership for $400 I think. Also its a rivet link on the chain...I had a clip on my previous chain and didn't like it. X-ring all the way.

I wouldn't go +/- on a 650 since it already has enough power on the bottom.

Says who? Sorry, but no way would I stay with stock gearing on one of those.

I've got the stealth vortex sprockets. It's aluminum with steel coated teeth. Best of both worlds

How do they coat Al. with steal? Al. has a significantly lower melting point. I have never seen one.

My guess is that they rapidly cool it after dipping. I worked in a foundry we melted aluminum and all kinds of steel nickel brass ect. Thats the only way I could see it going down.
