dont go with any, the sprocket will last about 5K. Stay with 525 and then go with a 15/45 combo.

If you still want the 520 then buy the better chain and sprocket, a cheap chain will stretch faster and take your sprockets with it.

if you're street riding mainly.....stick to the 525 setup. 520 will wear faster than the 525

if you plan on doing the 520 anyways. don't buy any of those kits, piece em together yourself with quality brands/models

give patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited a call for some prices 281-444-0545

how many miles on the chain? unless its pretty new then replace it.

You can get the sprockets but you just need to look around. Get steel if possible.

Lots of places you can get them, just run a search.

Replace both chain and sprockets at the same time, and go with a rivet type master link, not a clip on. Here are some chain/sprocket brands I prefer..

Chains: EK, DID, RK
Sprockets: AFAM, Renthal, Sunstar

I hear bad reviews about Vortex sprockets, so I say away from them personally. All can be purchased through True Methodz or Motorcycles Unlimited.

several companies offer stell sprockets, afam, driven, etc. just give patrick a call and he'll get you hooked up with what you need and for super cheap too!

you cannot mix and match 520 stuff with 525 stuff. everything has to be the same, from sprockets to chain.
