Hi.

What is the pro/ cons of converting to 520 setup on the 45? Except for strength of course. I ride a maximum of 200 miles a year.

520 Pro is light weight for the same strength of the stock 525... the Con is decrease in longevity...

Chain Pitch and width are in 8ths of an inch... between the 520 and
525 and 530 there is no difference in roller dia or pin dia or tensile
strength... the difference is only in the roller width...the greater
the roller width the longer the chain last with the factory installed
grease sealed behind the oil rings...



In order to preserve the longevity of the stock drive system I kept
the stock 17T and the 525 chain and customizing a steel 96 97 ZX7R 43T
to fit...

Weight difference...

Ahem... any suggestions where it`s possible to get a rear 43 sprocket...? Turns out it`s not so easy. 525 size.

In the past you could find 520 43T steel HRC sprockets but no more...

I've searched the entire JT sprocket catalog specs for a suitable 525 43T steel sprocket without success... the closes find was 520 GSXR...
