    its either a 520 or a 530. If your not changing sprockets top another size, you need to buy the same size chain.

      Ring Total Motorcycle Acc in Vic Park Good people there , they will sort it for you , i would think it to be a "530" pitch .
      Also you are replacing ya cogs at the same time aint ya ?
      Never do one without the other

      Suzuki and Kawasaki have a thing for the "525" try to avoid that if its standard fittment go the 530

            I'm pretty sure only the 600's use a 525.

                  i'd say just get a 520 chain and sprockets

                  heaps more sizes available. plus i got an alloy sprockets which is heaps lighter than steel

                  i got a 520 gold x-ring chain and sprockets from sum of all parts for 220 delivered.

                      + 1 for a 520 conversion if the chains is a 530. Way way way more range of chains and sprockets. Also generaly cheaper

                        a 520 chain is stronger than a 530 due to the shorter lenght of the pins but the thinner sprockets mean they wear quicker.
                        so use your budget to decide. Pick a top of the range chain like a DID ERV2 and then decide if a small increase in acceleration ( one you won't feel unless your on a racetrack is worth a much shorter sprocket life.

                            By as much as it changes the drive ratio, depends on how far you go.

                            -1 on the front or +2 on the back is about 10%ish, so your speedo will say 110 when you're doing 100.
