Just normal, because its just for the stunt bike, its gonna get beat to hell anyways.

On my 1000 though I'm going with renthal sprockets.

ok i have to ask, i know its gonna sound silly but...im not to sure how the ratings on the chain sizes work. i hear a lot of you doing "520" conversions. i assume this is the chain size. i know my 04 1k has "530" stock and the 600 and 750 have "525" stock . wouldnt putting on a "520" be smaller/weaker? or is there a advantage to doing this? just curious if im correct on this , im most likely doing a sprocket change over the winter and want to be sure to do it the right way. thanks for any feedback..

You are correct in that the size of the chain, 530-525-520 is the width of the chain. Usually the difference is tensile strength, but you can find 520 chains with close to the same tensile strength and most stock 530 chains, but the advantage for using the 520 chain is the chain and sprockets are so much lighter than the stock 530 equipment, so you have less rotational mass, which means a little quicker acceleration and stopping. plus the all around weight saving.
