The dealership said it was all stock w/525 setup. Which is better out of the 520/525/530 systems?

530 will last a billion times longer, at the sacrifice of 1-2 hp. 520 will give you an extra 1-2 horsepower, in return for the lifespan of a mosquito.

I'd go with either 525 or 530.

I rolled with that same bike with engine mods and a 520 chain and the chain lasted like 2 years.

That means your going too slow :P



hahahaha, you know I'm kidding. I've never had a 520 chain to know, thats just what I've heard, having tried both kinds, which would you prefer?

So higher the better? I'm not lookn for more power, just longer lasting gear. Anyone know the best teeth set up. Maybe something with a little more quickness too it. I found on the internet that the bikes stock gearing is 16/43 and for a 3.0 ration, it should be 15/43 for best performance.

higher the number is the longer it will last. I like stock front with 2 up in the rear. or maybe even three up. you still can't go wrong with the 520 though.

So if I just replace the rear sprocket with another 525 sprocket, I won't have to replace any other part right?

+1
If your rear sprocket is worn that badly I'd replace the whole set.
I'd stay with 525 stock though.

Charles / Paniro is a fanatic for maintenence, which is why his 520 setup lasted so long.

HW,

I just picked up the RK chain and sprocket kit from Patrick like last week. I went stock rear and down one tooth up front. And yes, replace the chain and sprockets at the same time. The kit was jst under 200 with MH discount and that includes tax.

Ha Ha, funny you should ask....My clutch plates are FRIED. I need to replace all the steel and fiber cluth plates (13 of 'em total) sometime this week. I haven't had a chance due to moving and other in my life, but plan on having it up and running this weekend (if I can get to Motorcycles Unlimited tomorrow). I can tell you this though....It looks nice...really nice. Shiny siler sprocket with a shiny gold chain.:laughing6

Too much slack on your chain can cause damage to your gears. You might have chipped or broken teeth on your gears.

Ok, ordered parts, should be here friday, anyone not busy sat and interested in helping me put them on. I'm going to a 530 setup with 15/43 set up. From what I was able to figure out, hard part is the chain. Any clues?

i use air to take the front sprocket off rear sprocket is self explanatory might want to check the cush drives while you're back there. cut the old chain off route it back through then make sure you put the clip for the master link the right way adjust then roll. all else fails hollar at me.
