I emailed a vendor on the R6 forums about it, but he has not replied yet. I bought my Pazzo levers on a special from him and have talked to him on the phone, so he gives good advice, just looking for some more opinions. Yes, I said opinions...

I have an R6, no track time, don't ride it hard at all, all street riding with the occasional NC twisty road rides for a half-a-day with other enthusiasts.

I was looking at doing this for two reasons, and please correct me if I am wrong about these:

1. The power moves down the power band somewhat, giving me more usuable power than just the top end, hence more streetable.

2. The gold chain and black sprockets give the R6 a freaking sexy look to it! I already have the black Vortex rearsets, so I think this will look good tying the black and gold into the bike.

Here is what mine would look like if I did go through with it





Here are some other guys comments that have done the conversion:

and i gotta say thats one hell of a difference! but is it me or does the handling seem a little bit off after this conversion? seems like i have to put a little bit more muscle into turning. also i hear this wierd zingy noise coming from the front sprocket when in low (3-5) rpm anyone have any idea what that is? i have stealth back sprocket, sprocket specialist for front, and its a -1/+2

The gearing really smoothed things out. It feels like I have more power consistently, rather then it catching later or abruptly. NOt too strong though. I didn't want a wheelie machine.

It only took a couple hours, but I had to wait til a buddy of mine and I were able to get together and use his bleeder and expertise.

I bought the sprocket from Cory at MotoMummy. It is a sprocket specialist (super light version). You should be able to read the label on a couple of the pics. It is just up side down.

i just did the 520 Conversion with Stealth Sprockets and D.I.D. ERV3 race chain....1 down in the front and 2 up in the rear...

lemme just say you are correct about the power down low. if you arent careful the front will get light at full throttle. Iv brought it up in first gear EASILY

the only real cons i can think about is the speedo error...mine has about a 15-20 percent error after this mod.. when we are cruising at 80 mph, my speedo reads from 100-105 mph, and rpms are higher too...so dont expect your mileage to get better.

um lemme post pics of my setup...dont mind that the chain is dirty...just came back from ripping up the canyons

Sure, post your pictures. I am pretty set on getting this as the cons don't really outweigh the pros for me. I don't plan on riding much harder, just looking to upgrade and make the bike look better.

The speedo error is something I am going to have to deal with. I have heard D.I.D. chains are the best, so that is what I am going with, even though I don't plan on riding it that hard.

You can always get a speedo healer
theres a couple of models for the D.I.D. chain... ERV3 is the all out pre-stretched race chain
