Play around on this website
Lower gears; smaller front sprocket and/or bigger rear sprocket
Taller gears; bigger front and/or smaller rear
Just like on a mountain bike...
Im guessing its for your 929? A lot of people seem to like 15/45 gearing thats the -1 and +2 from the stock sprockets.

I'll offer a counter-opinion that if your 929 isn't being used on the track, I'd stick with the 530 chain & sprockets. The 520 stuff is mostly just as strong and should last as long, although some 520 set-ups are recommended for 750cc and less. The gearing change is what you'll really notice and will make a nice difference. I'd go with 15/44 or 15/45. I have 15/44 on my 929 (used to use it on the track) and it's still great for street/highway.

I've recently learned that the DID ERV3 chain isn't the strongest 520 chain (although it's certainly a good chain). The 520 RK GXW has a higher tensile strength.
