Sprocket / Chain Question

Since I'll be upgrading to an SSSA and using an 1199 rear end...

Should I stick with the 525 pitch or get the 520 conversion kit. Will I notice a difference? All I do is street riding.

And the OEM 1199 sprocket is -5 from ours, is that going to be ok too? How will this affect me.

Basically I'm asking if I should just use all stock OEM sprocket / chains or get a kit

Search is your friend. There are many threads open on what you seek with your conversion.

So the OEM front 899 sprocket is a 15T 520 sprocket, so it's probably easier and cheaper to just get a 520 rear and a new longer chain I'd assume.

What exactly happens when you have less teeth in the back though? Do you really notice like 1 or 2 less? I assume 5 less would be drastic

Yes you would notice.

but you would get a 300kph top speed......

It would be as quick in accerating. Even just getting 14/39 would still be to Tall for 899 power/gearbox gearing. Try finding the correct sprocket.

So I could go faster with it, or the speedometer would just read wrong...

Ya I found a steel 44T rear that I'm going to go with

If I understand correctly, the speedo sensor will still read the rear wheel rotation, so there is no need for a modified speedo adjuster.

I am likely wrong, but I remember reading that on here somewhere...

It's ok if it does read wrong, cuz I'm still going to go as fast as I feel like

You swap out the 899 speed sensor for the 1199 sensor when you do the conversion I think, but the sensor regardless of 899/1199 does read off rear wheel rotation.

As for gearing, It's going to be spinning that (slightly) heavier 200/55 tire, but the chain is only going to be handling torque loads from that 898cc engine. I'd say 520 chain and just pick a gear ratio you think is comfy.

For my type of riding, I personally think the 899 gearing is too short for comfort ; )

Straights are for fast bikes, turns are for fast riders.

What exactly do you mean by that?

I only ride street, no track. What would be better for me then? More or less teeth.
