520 is the first thing I do to a bike besides hack off the rear fender.

I've never had to adjust my chain either.

kman066, I'd like to advise you against the Vortex sprocket. My R6 ate one up in 4k miles. Get the Sprocket specialist Stealth sprocket. steel teeth with an aluminum carrier.:hail

For the racetrack, 520

DID X-Ring all the way.

We've tried them all for endurance racing, and nothing has lasted nearly as well as the DID X-Ring chain.

For sprockets, I like Sprocket Specialists hard anodized or AFAM. Excellent endurance results with either

Nope, sold the airbox with the motor. Still have adjustable billet triples, radiator set, axles, calipers, motor with bad 3rd gear, and lots of little parts. And a full-on race TLR. I'll list everything later on the classifieds with part #'s.

Had the aluminum Vortex sprocket on for over 8k miles and no signs of excessive wear. In fact, my original one with 3k miles looked worse than the Vortex one does now. Maybe you got a bad one, or I got a good one, but I'm happy. I was worried at first getting an aluminum sprocket for wear but it looks fine. At the time I got it because it was cheap, but it works and why change what works. Also, having the chain out of adjustment can chew a sprocket up real quick. I adjust mine once a month. It only takes 5 minutes. It usually doesn't require anything though.

Plus the vortex looks cool with the little waves/flares engraved into it on the sides.
