I searched the forum and couldn't find an answer to this. I was thinking about doing a 520 sprocket conversion but have some questions. How much top end will I loose? Typicly I bring my bike to 120 or 130 a couple times a week. I've had it up to 155 but there's really no need for me to do that and i've rather trade of to accelerate faster at lower speeds. Also what i'm curious about is if i go -1 / +3 or -1 / +4 will that still be streetable or will i be doing wheelies out of the hole everytime? and if it is streetable how much top end will i loose? Any input would be great. Thanks Guys!

going to a 520 without changing gearing will get you no noticeable difference in performance. Top speed can be found in the attachment. Your bike comes stock with a 16/48. Some claim that they street a -1/+4 but its a wheelie machine. I wouldn't go past that.
