New chain and sprockets for cbr1000rr 2006

Hello everybody,
i need to change the chain and sprockets to my 2006 cbr1000rr
my manual says DID 50VM2 or RK 50GFOZ1 chain
i would prefer DID but the dealer here (Greece) is much too expensive and my manual doesn't say anything about sprockets or chain sizes...
i think chain is 530 and sprockets are 16/42
is the 520 just lighter?

im not intresting in modifying the set, just let it like stock is. Its strong enough for me for now

i have found these :
1
http://www.dkmotorcycles.com/?sectio...t=4118&start=0
2
http://www.dkmotorcycles.com/?sectio...=29625&start=0
3
http://www.dkmotorcycles.com/?sectio...=11810&start=0

all of them are cheaper than what they sell as replacements here (for example AFAM 520 costs about 190 Euros with sprockets)

any info, advise or site to buy from would be much apriciated.
Thanks
Thomas

Yes, the stock chain and sprockets are 530 and 16/42. I _think_ the chain is 108 links but I'd have to check that.
520 is narrower so, yes, it's lighter. It's not significant though unless you also run an aluminium rear sprocket.

Re: New chain and sprockets for cbr1000rr 2006

Thank you bladeracer!!!
so i guess i want the stock type chain since im not racing much not i make my living out of racing and the blade is strong enough for me already

i was thinking of a DID 50(530)ZVM2 kit with JT sprockets 16/42, which costs 221,30€ here, or simpler DID 50(530)VM with same sprockets.
X-Ring


any sugestions on or sites to search?

I run DID ERV3 and JT sprockets in 520.
I'd check Ebay for good deals and then maybe some online dealers but I don't know how difficult or expensive it is to buy from outside your country.
It'd also be worth PM'ing Skorpia as she's a site sponsor and was running a chain and sprocket deal last year.
Chain & Sprocket Kits are back!!
