Will my 525 chain fit on a 520 sprocket?

1 of 1

Q. I’ve just bought a 15-tooth front sprocket for my GSX-R600.

I bought it off eBay and it was advertised to fit a 525 chain, which I have.

It came yesterday and it’s a 520 front sprocket. Would the 520 front sprocket fit on a 525 chain without problems occurring?

A. No way. Get it exchanged for the correct size or you could find your chain jumping the sprocket and smashing up the engine casings – or even your foot!
