Just kidding. 520 refers to the chain width which is sometimes preferred becuase they are lighter than stock chains and I'm sure a whole bunch of other mechanical and law of physics reasons. You need 520 width sprockets to use them though.

480 is the resolution of older IBM monitors :)

Well, it's Daylight Savings Time starting at 2:00 AM Sunday, so tonight before you go to bed, you should set your chain back one hour.... :crash

When you take off the seat , right next to the battery is this black box looking thingy. It will have a some dipp switches on it. All switches up is for 530 setting. First two up last two down is for 520 setting. All down is for 480.

Good luck.

Thanks for the link, but I gotta ask, what makes that worth 90 bucks, when I already have a laser pointer I could probably use?
probably nothing, if you can fab a mount to hold your pointer perfectly level, that would work. The key is getting it level, and having a base that fits on the sprocket, in a location to gun sight down the chain :thumbup
