Changing Chain and Sprockets?
I have a 2005 GSXR600 and i want to change chain and sprockets. I was told stock is 16/45 525 x 112. I am looking for more torque so I want to go down one tooth and go to 520. What would be my best chain and sprocket kit option?

The brand is personal preference. Going with a larger rear sprocket will give you better low end response but will cut a little off of your top end, the same is true by using a smaller front sprocket. The ratio you use is something you may want to ask someone with the same bike and riding style as yourself, because the most important thing is that it suits your riding style.

More torque = down in front and/or up in back. The conversion to a 520 kit will not improve torque but it will decrease weight and unsprung rotational weight by a minimal amount.
