Gearing/chain questions - 1000RR

I did some searching through the forums, but what's a good setup for the 1000RR for gearing for the track? Also, has anyone had any problems with a 520 chain on this bike? I think I want to change gearing, I'm still running stock chain/sprockets and I know at Putnam I'm pretty much just using 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear. Suggestions?

Re: Gearing/chain questions - 1000RR

I did the 520 and went -1/+2. I'm not good enough to feel a difference between the 520 and stock (or know that I'm feeling a difference), but even a dead man could tell the difference since the sprocket change. The first real test of the swap was at Little Talledega. For lack of any better way to say it, the bike just flat out moves.

Don't leave home without it.
