Well after Google'n my ass off for the last hour I still can't find a straight answer. Here's the deal. I've got a k4 750 with the stock 525 17/43 with only 6k miles on the set. I found a forum member that has a 16/45 525 set from either a k1 750 or a k3 600, he can't remember which. Are either of these compatible with my K4 750? Thanks for your help guys. :thumbup:

Well I got the info I was looking for and I thought I would post it up in case anyone else needs it.

01-09 GSXR 600 = 525 pitch stock
00-09 GSXR 750 = 525 pitch stock
01-09 GSXR 1000 = 530 pitch stock
All have same bolt pattern. Obviously you have to match pitch.

It SHOULD work in either case. Stock chain length on 00-05 600's and 750's is 110 links, and a 16/45 sprocket combination off a 600 equates to a -1/+2 combination for a 750, which generally uses the same number of links.

Yeah it is a mod so you just don't know until you try it. But for only $32 investment it's worth a shot. My chain is in pristine condition so it's actually worth doing it this cheap way. Now I just need to find a used speedo healer.

UPDATE: Both sprockets installed perfectly with the stock 110 link chain. I only had to move the adjusters inboard one index mark.

RESULT: :woot:Holy shit!:woot: nuff said.

If you're reading this thread because you're considering doing this yourself. STOP reading this thread and just go do it. -1/+2 seems to be the perfect balance between increased acceleration and streetability at freeway speed.

Well now it's time for some more "testing" :burnout:
