520 chain conversion
« on: July 03, 2019, 03:20:47 am »
The time has come to replace the chain and both sprockets of my '82 FT500, and was wondering if anybody had the part numbers or the models from which the sprockets come from to convert to the 520 size. I would like to go to 520 as all my other bikes use that size and can get them with 'O' or 'X' ring as well. Any help greatfully received.
Thanks, Steve.

I used a sprocket on the rear from a 86 87 Suzuki GSXR the front from a xr500 Honda, I  am running 15 + 39 gearing it's a bit tall but works good if you plan on running plus sixty or so and works good in town for me ,I am 210 lbs and it pulls ok from a stop in first gear still, but don't plan on wheelies in first gear lol
