530 sprockets/chain??

Vortex said they can offer me a 530 rear sprocket but not the front. does anyone make a 530 front sprocket? are there any weird clearance problems with the 530 and thats why people arent offering them for our bike?? I really would much rather run a 530 vs the stock 525 bc this is for a stretched bike setup for drag racing.

Most s1000rr guys that I've seen with good numbers run 520 chain and sprockets and 520 drag chain with no problem. I think you should consider it. Mvxz I believe is the most used chain.

After investigating on this topic, I bought an EK ZZZ X-ring 520 that is stronger than Regina 525 that they take our bikes. In your case I would buy a EK ZZZ 525 and you do not change anything any more. I send to you the link so that you study it. Forgives my english
