Word of advice... Don't go through "sprocket specialists" or anyone who uses them when you order...

I went through Indy Super Bikes to order my 525 14/44 sprockets that were "available" at the time of order... 3 months later I'm still getting excuses as to why sprocket specialists (ISB's vendor) hasn't' fulfilled my order...

I'd also consider a 520 chain conversion (since you're already ordering all 3 anyway)... it removes several pounds (about 3 to 4 if I'm remembering correctly) from your rotational mass and that is equivalent to several horsepower across the power band on your real world power (at the rear wheel).

You don't have to take my word for it, but there are a lot of folks who will show the same results if you go on the SV forums and look for race mods.

I have thought about the 520 conversion but I have heard that overall the amount of weight savings isnt really worth it overall.

For street use I'd stay 525 and use steel sprockets.

+1

I went back to a 525 chain and sprockets and I'm getting way more life out of it. I'm using a solid front sprocket (15 tooth right now) and a "superlight" and case hardened (some kind of super tough treatment) 45 tooth rear... I've put almost 10k miles on them and still not showing significant wear. The 520 chain was more responsive, but I had to replace it after a year. The 14/44 gearing was WAY more responsive (wouldn't think 2 teeth would be that big a difference, but it was) but I need the fuel economy... $4/gal is ridiculous.

I prefer the stock front with the rubber; they are a tad quieter

Steel, or hard anodized aluminum for the street.
