    hi something to clarify about chain and spocket.

    between 520 convert and 525, i can understand 520 is better in pick up and acceleration but lousy top end.

    my qn is my spec2 at 100km/h , rpm is around 6.5 at gear6, just on the edge of valve opening as i m using stock chain+spocket ratio.
    if i change it to 520convert, will my rpm increase if i m still traveling same speed meaning with 520convert, at 100km/h rpm be ard 7-7.5 ?

    this is to double confirm before i m changing spoc and chain in 1week time and don't wan to make a wrong decision. i would love a little light in pick up and acceleration but wanna know how much would i be sacrificing

    please enlighten me as i m new and willing to learn. thank you brother and sister.

    Went to my regular bikeshop & asked about AFAM but they don't recommend. Their advise is "Stock is still the best". I haven't change so I don't know.

    Yup, OEM steel is still the best. My DID O-ring with JT steel lasted me for 3.5 years with proper care.

    Bro.. 520 and 525 is the size of the chain and sprocket
    520 is. thinner, less material = less weight .
    525 is thicker, more material = more weight.

    Its the no of teeth that determinds your pickup and top end.
    Stock teeth is 15 front and 43 rear.
    so if u want more acceleration lesser top end go for 15 front 44or45 rear.
    lesser acceleration , more top end 15 Front 42 rear

    Thanks for the tip. I always tot that 160 rear is a little over for a 400cc as it used to be the size of supersports 600 during the 90s. Changing to 520 could be helpful.

    Hi Guys,

    Is it normal that during your first gear/slow speed your chain quite noisy?
    or it means I need to more lube my chain and sprocket?

    Btw I am riding CB400 Vtec3.
    Thanks
    Be wise on the road...
    Think of your loved one!
