    ^^^how old is your chain? It may be a good idea to replace the chain if its too old and has wear. You dont want to put old chain on new gears.

    How I measured how off my gauges were,
    I had a buddy that had a non modified chain. We both were riding the same speed and he told me how fast we were going.

    I'm off by 5mph slower on my cbr. 1 down 2 up

    My chain is pretty old. It's gonna be a while before I can afford a 125 dollar chain lol.

    I'm actually excited about the speedo being off. I have what psychologists call dangerous behavior. So, when I register 20 over just cruising, I will be safer lol.

    Do yourself a favor and put your sprocket on a shelf until you get a chain as well. Change them both at the same time if you can. The old chain will eat your new sprocket quickly and you will just wind up buying another sprocket.

    Ok. I respect that advice. However, I must add that my sprockets are in good shape. No excessive wear or hooking. I am simply replacing the sprockets for more torque and acceleration.

    As has been mentioned DON'T put your new sprockets on with your admittedly OLD chain. You are going to ruin them. What's the point of spending $ just to flush it down the toilet? Change sprockets and chains at the same time.

    You may even need a longer chain to go +2 in the rear also. Just saying, It may be tight.

    yes, forgot to mention this. the stock chain may work, but you will have ZERO adjustability as the tire will be too close to the swingarm in front. all -1+2 conversions i have done, have required at least 2 additional links in order to safely adjust the chain.

    Hmm. some very good points guys. I didn't even think about that! I will try it out and see what I come up with. I may ping you guys about the adjustment thing when I get to that point.

    Worst case, I just wait to install the sprockets until I start getting more cash flow and can start remodelling the bike. I might just return these sprockets and when the time comes, order a red chain and do a 520 conversion :P
