My ZX10 needs a new chain and sproket bad. To get a stock chain 532 with 110 links will run somewhere around $400-$500 clams, thats before new sprokets and install. Someone mentioned I could convert to a more common size like 530 which would run around $300 all together ($75 for sprokets, $140 chain, and around 100 for labor). Good idea/Bad idea? Can someone recommend a good manufaturer and kit?

I had Sprocket Specialist sprockets on my 600 and a DID Gold chain. I never had a problem with either. $400 - $500 seems very expensive for a sprocket/chain set up. I think my mine was less than $200 for the parts plus labor. You can do the work yourself with the right tools. I was having my tires changed out, so I did it all at once.

Can you forward me contact info for them? 200 sounds real good.

I got them from www.kneedraggers.com My sprockets ended up being around $60 and the chain was $140. I got the DID ERV Gold/Gold chain. Front was a 16T and rear was +2 at 47T in size 525. If you order during business hrs they will have your stuff shipped to you that same day if it's in stock and you should have it all in a week or less.

About a month ago I order my blue RK chain, front and rear sprockets from Sprocket Center for $185 shipped. (-1 on the front, +3 on the rear, and 120 links) I kept the stock 525 setup. I installed it myself in about an 2 hours or so..

530 chains are as strong as they come. I did a conversion on my KZ1000. I went from a 630 to a 530.

worked like a peach.

Damn, that's a little steep. Shop around some more, I think you can find better deals out there.

Bah, do it yourself. If you can adjust your chain slack and have the tools to remove the wheel, it doesn't take long at all.

Just order a chain breaker when you order your sprockets and chain. It costs around 75$, but you will never again spend money for labor.

Jedi I have all the tools to put new sprockets and chain on... bring the bike over when you get the parts and we can knock it out in an afternoon. Get rivet link, not the clip-on connector.

Thanks guys, but I dropped it off at Champians last week before going out of town to let them handle it. Should have it back today. Just have not had the time lately to play with it. Even my weekends are booked.
