Steel sprockets will last the longest and the best/strongest chain is the EK ZVX or ZZZ. I recommend putting the correct size chain back on it whether its 525 or 530.... No reason to weaken the drive train for a possible 2hp gain.

try www.streetntrackimport.com

Charles is the owner and he cuts some pretty good deals on chains/sprockets.

i roll Vortex but thats cuz i roll big tooth sprockets. but yea steel sprockets will last longer if you are keeping factory gearing. you would probly use a 525 chain, I think a 530 would be over kill unless its a 1000. but check and see what you have factory

I have a 520 conversion, got the aluminum rear sprocket with the kit, lasted less than 6 months. went back to steel and a new chain, the chain and sprocket sets last me about a year
