Really need sprocket n chain help

Have 97 gsxr 600 need new sprocket and chain. I'm used to riding geared bikes for stunting. I'm thinking just go down one in the front. But others say get a quick acceleration set up. I don't really care about going 180+ I do want to be able to wheelie it with no issue. So what do you guys think. 520 kit? Etc

Depends on what you're doing.
If you're commuting than I'd just go -1 and stay with the stock 525 chain size for a lot longer life.
The bike will still be able to wheelie fine.

j.e., if you're -1/+2 and have no speedo recalibration than at 160 indicated you're actualy going somewhere around 140 mph. Still plenty fast though.

I think you guys might be missing the fact he has a 1997 GSXR 600.
A bike stock on a good day might do 150 mph.
Gearing that works well for later model bikes with more power don't always transfer well to other applications.
-1/+2 is a pretty significant gearing change for most street riders, especially if you're doing a lot of highway riding / commuting. My 2 cents ymmv.

Crash,
Tony915 has a new DID 525 chain for sale here:

And you can pick up a set of quality steel sprockets for under $60.00.

Stock c/s is a 16 tooth so I'd only go to a 15. The 14 is so small it's on the chain and will cause the chain to cut the swingarm guide.
The stock rear is 45.

I don't have the rear in stock but can get it in one business day.
Call Luke at the shop and he can give you pricing, don't forget to tell him you're with mh and a vet.

j.e., fwiw a stock GSXR600 tops out around 162-163, keep in mind that's actual, not indicated. The stock speedo is off roughly 6-8% at higher speeds.
Geared down roughly 11 percent like you are I'd be surprised if you break 150 ish actual.

Dont GPS it then. You will be upset when you see 140 ish with gearing. 10 MPH at the very top isn't a "little"

Here's a little post where I put a few articles together with some links about sprockets/chains and speedo changes.

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=179311

Some good advice in this thread, but this helps to understand why.
