I've got this gearing on my bike now(01F4i), and it's great for around town, backroads and such. On the highway in sixth gear I think 70 is around 6 or 7 thousand RPM. It just feels a little high strung. But overall I like it a lot, but I also don't take long trips on the highways. If you don't get a speedo healer or some way of compensating for the gearing change you'll rack up miles a lot quicker. Hope this helps.
ya it does thank you. what kind of sprockets and chain do you have? I was thinking of vortex with an RK. Oh what size of chain do you need with that set up, I want to try and order the right size right away
I kept the same(I think it's called pitch) size chain and sprockets as stock 525/530 which ever it is. Going to the 520 has it's benefits, but I didn't feel like paying the exrtra $$ for them. I got a kit(chain, sprockets) from some no name company off ebay. To be honest I'm not even sure what brand chain and sprockets I have currently, but I know Vortex and RK make quality products so you can't go wrong with either. Look around you might be able to find a kit with sprockets and chain together and save a few bucks.
From what I understand steel will last longer than the aluminum, but the aluminum will be slightly lighter, I'm almost 100% sure on this. I think most front sprockets you find are gonna be steel(more wear and tear than the rear). With the rears you have a choice steel or alum. Some companies ex. Driven have alumin hub and teeth made out of steel. I went with the steel front/rear because of longevity.
