Shop for R1 sprockets and chain

Snapped my chain last night. I've got 16 tooth front and 50 rear stock is 17/45. Any one know of a shop where can find a 16/50 sprocket and chain set? I know I can order it, but I don't want wait for it.

if you can, do some research on what chain and sprockets works for you, then let me know. that way i can get you a price.

takes about 2-3 days for me to get it

I'm trying to find either a 15/47 set or 16/50 set and whatever 520 chain is necessary. I'm going to do some calling around tomorrow and see if I can find something local before ordering.

i'd go with a #530 o ring chain and steel sprockets to handle the horspower and torque your bike makes.

#520 is meant for 500-600cc bikes. you have an r1 or r6?

#520 may not have the tensile strength your bike needs if its an r1

let me know what part numbers and pricing of what you want

You brings new rider you need to stay as close as stock as possible. Extreme gearing on a r1 as a new rider isn't a good combo. There has been a spike in accidents lately a lot of new riders so if your new with a 1000 plz stay behind me lol ride safe bro
