Fireblade to VFR chain conversion.

Post by tomtom on Tue 15 Dec 2009, 09:53

Having fitted a VFR swinging arm to the Blade ,can anybody tell me if there is a rear sprocket off anything that fits the VFR hub as it is a 530 fitting and the Blade is a 525 and i have a new 525 chain which i would rather extend than bin for a new front sprocket to match the VFR chain size.Thanks folks.

While I was looking for a sprocket I left an enquirey with these people, and they got back to me quite quickly. They will make me a 525 pitch sprocket with 48 teeth to fit my VFR arm for 44ish incl post and VAT. Ask for Jane, she's a top girl and super helpfull.

Anyway here is the link to their web site,
