Chain and Sprocket

Hey folks, new rc51 owner from Maryland. I want to change out my chain and sprocket. It's currently oem. I'm probably going to go with 16-42 then get a speedo healer. Anyone do any conversions with comments and did you take it to. 520?

I went 520 and -1/+1. I'd suggest doing that at the minimum. I kind of wish I had gone -1/+2 with the 190/55 rear tire

I have not. But I've figured out that with -1/+1 it's about 10-12 mph off depending how fast your going

I've always run RK chains and vortex sprockets. I would recommend a steel rear sprocket though. I've noticed over the last 2k miles that my rear sprocket is having difficulty with the torque haha

LDH.

You need to write a book about the RC51 and what is best for it in it's entirety.

Unless you have and in which case where do I buy it...?
