ZX10R Chain Question.

Postby MUS15 » Sun Aug 02, 2015 3:46 pm

G'day guys,

Need help can't really find any info on the different chains / sprockets to throw on to the bike.

ATM i bought a green EK 520SRX chain for my 2010 ninja. But doesn't fit on to the rear and front sprocket.

Kelen kawasaki are trying to order my new 525 chain with a rivet link.

My Q is what is the standard size chain / sprocket for 2010 ZX10R, what are the other options can i still use this chain (520)?

Frustrating to have the bike parked up for a week now.

Any help would be appreciated

If you buy 520/sprockets you can run the 520 chain.
Common mod to these bikes. Especially on track.

Lighter. But doesn't last as long.

For the road yes, although there's nothing wrong with using a 520 for the road you'll just replace it and sprockets marginally more than a 525.

It's done for weight saving and a very small power gain for the track.
