I'd replace both sprockets. RK sells kits. They are priced well @ around $160-180. I got about 20k out of my RK set on my VFR.

I put a +2 Sprocket Specialist on the rear and replaced the front one as well. I got a DID ERV 525 chain and have been really happy with both. I ended up getting mine from kneedraggers.com. Your supposed to replace both sprockets at the same time, the fronts are pretty cheap anyway.

Has anyone changed their sprocket size on a 9R? Which size did you put on. I am working on my wheelies but I mostly just ride..

If you have trouble doing a wheelie on a stock 9 sprockets aren't gonna help you...

Hey numbnuts! I wasnt there when you all started. The only part I caught is when FlipnR6 kept on going back and forth to the store for the right socket for the rear! My major concern is if I change the size sprocket, how bad is it going to affect regular riding conditions?

Im checking out kneedraggers as we speak. FlipnR6 - We need another maitenence day!

Why a 520?
That's for racers. Lighter chain. Wears faster. Not such a good idea on a liter bike.

Yeah, I don't think I'd do a 520 on that bike either. It's an easy swap if you have the right tools. I didn't! Had to improvise with a center punch and a giant steel object to get the rivet link set. Also didn't have exactly the right socket for the front, but managed to improvise with an SAE socket and an impact wrench! Definitely don't recommend it! But when you wait until the night before a track day to do shit, you gotta be resourceful!

A couple of people said the same thing Steve. So, I stayed with the 530 chain. I ordered a new DID VM series chain and a new set of sprockets. The front one is stock and the rear is +2 which would make it a 43. They will be in next week.
