ok, iv read around, and gotten confused..

i want to get the front end up easier and more acceleration,

can i get a -1 front sproket and a +2 rear without doing a 520?

i dont wanna have to take links out and crap

i believe a 520 is just the thickness of chain? weight? ... i dont care about weight lol

I JUST WANT THE ACCELERATION PLEASE!!!

o if possible, someone wanna post a link to a place to buys! YAy

Please be gentle:flamethrower::angel:..

You can do it... but I suggest you get the whole package... and if you are getting the whole package you might as well go with 520 pitch

Just so u are aware 520 is not the weight or the thickness it is the pitch of the chain and of the sprockets.you cant use a 525 chain with 520 sprockets,and a few of these guys are right change the sprockets and chain as a package and yes u will have to cut the chain down but it is not hard to do,just spend the money and get yourself a cheap chain press to mushroom your new master link ends.

As far as I know a 525 sprocket will have wider teath then a 520 and therefore the chain and sprockets between 520 and 525 are not interchangeable - either way

I had to read "stretched" post again, because I thought he said you can use a 525 chain with a 520 sprocket. Missing the apostophe made me not see the "t".

You will likely NOT have to cut the chain down, going -1/+2. I went -1/+4 with the same chain. It just pulls the rear wheel closer in, that's all. Check to see where you are in the chain adjustment indicator. As long as you're not right up tight already, you should have enough adjustment.

Replacing the chain with the sprockets as a set is recommended, but really only necessary if you have signs of wear on them. If they are newish, you'll be fine. It's just that the set wear in together.

the lighter rotating mass ofgoing to 520 will also induce additional acceleration potential, along with the -1+2
