Re: 520 kit shopping

Try the site sponsors. They are located in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Be careful of the ones on e-bay, they are cheaper for a reason. Cheap chains cost you big time in the long run.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: 520 kit shopping

No need to buy it as a kit, unless the brands are what you want and the price is actually cheaper. You can buy the chain and sprockets individually.
If you're wanting to stay as close to stock as possible, stay with OEM gearing and go with steel sprockets.
Personal preference would be AFAM sprockets and DID chain, but there are other quality brands as well.

I also have a 03 954RR!! I used to have a 02 954RR till I went down and total it My question; My 02 used to be able to go all the way up to 90mph, or close to it, in 1st gear...I loved it!!....and all it had was a Akropavic bolt-on and nothing else as far as I am concerned...But my 03 now sounds like its going to blow up at about 45 to 60 and I find myself shifting way to quick, I feel like I am on a 600...Can you give me some feedback on how your bike was before you changed the sprocket and chain please? Also, I am not sure how this sprocket & chain thing works...stuff like 1 up or 2 down, can you help me out understanding this, thank you!

Re: 520 kit shopping

Is this 03 used? If so, the previous owner probably put different gearing on it....

This is a used 03, got it about a month ago. But he never mentioned anything about making any changes other then the 2 bros racing bolt-on, everything else is suppose to be stock. Now that you say that, 954RR's are suppose to go that fast stock?...meaning up to almost 90mph stock! If so I have some questions that need answers from this dude, thanks for the feedback!!

954 are supposed to have a very tall first gear, now that i have changed the sprockets and chain there is a big difference and most noticable in the lower gears. i went with -1/+1 because i didnt want to loose too much off the top end, you will also need a speedohealer because the milage and speedo-meter will be off by a few mph. yes i do find myself going through the gears much faster, thats just because i am able to get up to certains speeds and rpms much faster now, then compared to stock.

Re: 520 kit shopping

is -1/+1 pretty close to stock. I mean i want be as close as i can get - i hate to lose top end. But i do want to change it from stock. so is -1/+1 the best route.
EDIT
I found some other threads and a spread sheet.
And on Knee draggers . come i got some info.
So is stock 16/43??? (according to kneedragers)
so -1/+1= 15/44 = final gearing of 2.933
compared to 16/43 = final gearing of 2.688
Thank fellas im ordering somehting tonight - woot!
