Not sure what you're asking. Are you asking if they're 520 or 530 sized? If stock, it's a 530 size.

Good question.... I don't know if it is stock size or not??? So I don't know if I need 530 or 520 sprockets??? Is there some clear way to tell?? :huh:

Yes, you can measure the chain or sprockets....

530
3/8" wide rollers on the chain
0.343" thick sprockets

520
1/4" wide rollers on the chain
0.227" thick sprockets

Should also be stamped on the sprocket itself.
There is a 16 stamp on the front and 43 on the rear sprockets.. :confused:

My AFAM sprocket had 520 stamped on it, I thought the stock ones did as well. Maybe I'm wrong. Do what Baketech suggested, whip out the measuring tape and you'll know for sure.

Well, tape didn't lie I guess...

3/8" wide rollers....

That mean it's a 530.....

Thanks again for your help Baketech and all who assisted.. :thumb:
