Does this brand carry a 16/43 with a 520 chain for my 2005 CBR600RR? I didn't see it in the order menu. Thank you
Andy on Nov 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The quick acceleration kits only offer a 15T-43T with a 520 chain. In order to get the ratio desired you may have to order the parts separately.(individually and not from a kit).

hello. I have a problem I hope can help me. I have to replace the chain and rear sprocket and front of my SV 650 2005. I'm confused. because my bike now has 15 teeth in front sprocket. 44 rear sprocket. the kits for sale (chain and sprocket) are 14 front / 45 rear. what is the difference of using sprocket teeth 15/44 or 14/45? .
Alex on Aug 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This RK kit is a quick acceleration kit. There is a set of aluminum sprockets for better throttle response. The rear sprocket has one more tooth also to add torque and response to your bike. A real noticable differance in power increase.

I received a link from BikeBandit to my inquiry about chain sprocket kit for my 2003 Honda CBR600F4i but can't find the 48t rear sprocket. Does RK have a front 15T / rear 48T kit? I wanted to use 525 chain but was told only available in 520. I can't even find the 520 chain kit in the gear ratio I'm looking for.

Hi,
I have a '03 CBR 600RR. My manual recommends that the replacement chain be RK525ROZ1-120LJ-FZ with 112 links. Does that mean that I need a 525 pitch? What will happen if I drop to a 520? Also, can you tell me the stock sprocket ratio please?
Thanks

I noticed that there is a number listed under "ratio" for this chain on two listings, but a "n/a" is listed for the other two. What is the significance of the ratio number? I have a 2000 Kawasaki Ninja 9R (non-California model)... which version is the appropriate one?

530 vs. 520 chains

My CBR1000 comes with a 530 chain and all the packages show coming with 520 chains. Will this size chain iast under 'spirted' riding?
Jasonamoru on Mar 16, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question. The conversion from 530 to 520 will be a common conversion and should last just fine providing you lube the chain regularly and keep it at the proper tension.
Chain Install/Removal and 530 vs. 520?

I am going to be purchasing item number 360224 in the next week or so. I have a 2000 R6 with the stock sprockets and chain on it currently and over 30k miles.

First, Item number 360224 comes with a 530 chain and sprockets. Will I have to purchase anything else for this 530 kit, like a conversion kit, or will it just bolt in like the original chain/sprockets on the bike. If a kit is required can you give me the Item Number I will need to purchase?

Secondly, I saw that someone said that I will need a special tool for installing the chain. Will either Item Numbers 25711 or 24696 be the tool that I use to install/remove the chains, or can I use a standad needle nose pliers?

I would like to be able to purcahse all of the items that I need all at once so there is no waiting.

Thank You for you Time.
Jander on Mar 3, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question. Yes, item: 360224 will be a complete kit for your model. It will include the front and rear sprockets, along with the chain and master link. To break the old chain, and install the rivet link on the new chain you will need item: 24696.
'03 650 SVS?

Ok, probably has been asked already but will this particular kit fit my 2003 SV650S straight out of the box or will I need an additonal part to go with it?
Chep on Jan 28, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! With the kits for your particular model those will be ready to go right out of the BikeBandit.com box, no modifications would be needed.
if i have a CBR600rr with 112 links16/43. do i need to ty with a 112 link to a 520 conversion and will a 15/43 sprocket combo will i get better hole

shot without sacrificing too much top end. and final question if i purchase kit can i choose a red rear in color. will pay price adjustment!!!
Oregon on Jan 17, 2010
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question. Going down one tooth on the front sprocket will give you more bottom end, with a loss of top speed. Unfortunately a red rear sprocket is not available in this kit.
Would like to know the tensible strenght of this chain? I'm putting out over 60 brake horse power on this motor.. I'm breaking chains left & right!

Perfect fit!!!
This is about the easiest way to get the right parts for your bike, and a good price as well.
I had a shop install lower cost products in the past, I was not impressed with the durability of the parts.
The RK set should last a lot longer. The installation was not hard, but you will need a chain tool to rivet the master link together. It doesn't come with a Clip Style master. It would be nice if one didn't HAVE to spend money on a chain tool.
