Greetings RC owners..

Just picked up a new to me '01 RC51. Sold my TL1000S and went the sport tourer route...and that wasn't for me. Still liked the more aggressive twins..so RC it was. :)

Trying to see exactly what I have in regards to driveline, and wondering if you guys (gals) can help.

I'm pretty sure front sprocket is 16T...although I haven't pulled cover yet to verify. Rear is 40T. The chain is RK, and reads as follows, 0329 and 50SX01. I tried looking that up to see if 530, 525, 520, etc...no luck. Anyone else know, or know how to determine what chain it is, so I can order the correct sprockets.

It is running the 190/55. I understand 41 T rear sprocket will allow the 55 profile to clear swingarm. Anyone know if 42 will, or should I just drop the front to 15.

Sorry for so much in a first post. :) Thanks all for any input.



B.

Lots of people are running 41, 42, and a few 43's out there too.
15/41 is the most common conversion, (I believe) 15/42 is probably the next most common.
I use 15/42 x 520 with a 190/55 rear tire, I had to add an extra link in my chain to accommodate this set-up.
