I ordered the stealth rear and the ss front from them.

The stealth is aluminum center with ss teeth attached by Ti rivets.

Unfortunately, I am still waiting on UPS to deliver.

Well they said they have a 45 tooth ss for like $65 but i got to the site and they dont got the one for a 525 chain, but they got them for a 520 and a 530 so i guess im stuck on finding one again, i could get an Aluminum one but i want a steel one and i know the ss isnt steel but the strenth is in between the steel and Aluminum

I did the same thing. I have the Sprocket Specialist front and rear, with the rear being the Stealth model. I think it looks nice.

I stayed the same 16 teeth in the front, but went up 2 in the back. Not much noticeable change so far...

green_zx7r,

Did you put a new chain on also? If so, why did you set it back so far? When I put my chain/sprocket combo on, I had the wheel pushed all the way forward and then cut the chain.

Just curious.

I was thinking the same thing, but didn't want to say anything. Having the wheel out that far is going to effect your turning ability, basically giving the bike a longer wheelbase. That's about where mine is set, just because the stock chain has stretched so much (a 520 replacement is already on the way).

Also, those spools are HUGE!

The wheel had to be pushed back because the 45t sprocket hits a metal piece in the front part of the swingarm. I don't notice any turnability issues, but then again, I haven't ridden very hard since.

As for the question of chain, yes, I did change the chain as well to 520.

The spools are huge because they act as swingarm sliders as well. They actually did a very good job on my bike when I went down one time.

Hey All,

Green zx7r, I just did the same conversion you did and can't quite get the chain length right. I tried the stock 110 links and that seems too short and I tried 112 links but that seems too long. With 112 links that axle is all the way back and there is barely any tension on the chain. This is a new 525 chain and I do expect some stretching. What # of links did you use?

Easy...
