Has anyone performed a 530 chain conversion on this bike yet?

Which sprockets did you use?
Did you have to use spacers to compensate for offset?
Did you have any issues with the chain guide?

Please, do tell. :smokin:

Why would you want to go up to a 530? 525 is more than adequate, hell 520 is adequate and less rotating mass.

Most all 600cc and 750cc guys can easily go down to a 520 pitch setup (known as the 520 conversion). The bikes don't push enough horsepower (hp) to hurt a good quality 520 setup. Most guys who ride a 1000cc bike also convert to a 520 (this fact alone should give the 600cc and 750cc guys confidence in the setup). The only time i would recommend sticking with a 530 pitch setup is if you stunt it, love wheelies, have a turbo, have nitrous.

Bump...

Has anyone performed a 530 (not 520) conversion?
Bump. You were asked a question (repeatedly). Would forum etiquette not compel you to respond?

Bump. He asked a question (repeatedly). Would forum etiquette not compel people to respond with answers instead of questions?

(just playin both sides of the coin here)
