It's a 525 .

Some folks change the chain to a 520 . I've tried it . Never noticed a difference .

Thank you Roxy!
No it's not to change for a 520 (i've did it on my speed triple and it's a waste of money). I want to know it because i have a 2013 street triple on the way, and i want to order a front sprocket -1 theet, so if i don't like the new longer first speed on the new model, i'll change the front sprocket.

Maybe try out the stock gearing for a while; changing sprocket teeth will make the speedo very inaccurate which can be quite annoying on the road. Only fix is TuneEcu. IMO a 49T rear is better gearing giving even stronger top gear roll-on and the same top speed cos it will rev higher in top gear. The smaller front sprocket is harder on the chain and slider too. - Wayne
