Why?? :dunnozreuan said:does anyone know where to get a 520 conversion for the 04 r1, chain and sprokets. Or atleast who has the sprokets available
you mean adding one on the rear?afabbrin said:I'd like to hear some feedback from someone that has dropped one off the front on this bike. From all the talk about tall gearing (100+ first gear) I'm thinking about dropping one in the rear as well.
Something had to be wrong to go through that many sprockets in a yr unless you rode 100,00 plus miles........castrolr1 said:i agree with vpreatr... i tried a 520 kit on my old R1 and road it mostly street with some track days... i had to replace 3 front and 4 rear sprockets in a year, so i went back to 530... not worth it for street riding.. just my opinion
Did you replace the sprockets and continue to use the same chain within that year?? if so theres the answer to your own question as to why they went bad so quickly.castrolr1 said:i kept breakin teeth off of the sprockets... i'd be cleaning my chain and notice 2-3 teeth missing..
