i have been looking into 520 conversions a lot lately, and i was wondering if this conversion would really throw off your speedometer. isnt that speedometer cable connected to the front wheel? and if its not and does throw it off, how much does it actually throw it off? i want people experience. thank you

The 520 itself will not, but usually when people do a 520 they do more aggressive gears. This will throw off your speedometer, more gearing = farther off.

Even stock your bike is probably 7% off.

With a stock chain, and a -1 front gear, I was 11.5% off.

With a 520 chain, and a -1 front/+2 rear, I am 15% off.

I have a speedohealer dialed in with a GPS to fix this problem though.

Well... actually... i just checked my receipts, i paid $129 for the 520 kit. So i guess now it being $249 with the speedo healer....isnt that much of a saving deal if ya ask me. Since the Speedo healer is $100 anyways

The $129 was before shipping. We charge $20 for shipping which = $149.99

What I am saying is, you paied $149.99 for your kit and not $129.99. The $129.99 is just the base price. The $249.99 special is including shipping.
