I'm not sure but I think you'll run into clearance issues with a -2 front. I went with -1/+2 on my 06 R6 and its great. Best mod for the money.

Woah, -1/+4 is gonna be insane. I got the -1/+3 and it's pretty stankin' torquey. haha

Re: -2/+2 for 520 conversion to much ??

-1 / +2 or 3 yes....
but -2 in front is silly... Unless its only purpose is for wheelies....

U can go -2 in front and -2 or 3 on rear to compensate though.. Less rotating mass.....

Re: -2/+2 for 520 conversion to much ??

i've got -1/+4 right now. can't beat the pull in 2nd and 3rd, but i'm planning on going to a -1/+2 or something so that it's a little more tame.

Re: -2/+2 for 520 conversion to much ??

I wanna go -1/+2 and have read the other threads on this but I don't wanna screw with a chain breaker. Anybody know where I can order a kit that gives the sprockets and chain pre-sized for my 05r6 ?

I just ordered the DRIVEN -1/+2 kit. I was looking for a thread like this one before I ordered it. Fortunately, it looks like I made the right choice going -1/ +2. It comes with a 520 RK gold chain too. Can't wait.
