I'm looking to order some new sprockets and chain soon. What is the stock setup for the Ninja 500? I found a site online that said the 16T front and 47T rear sprockets were stock. Is that right? The 47T rear is the one I'm not so sure about.

The main reason I want to know is because I need some tires for a ride in less than 2 weeks. I'm probably gonna order some Pirelli Sport Demons from motorcycle-superstore.com. After getting the tires I only need to spend $40 more and I get free overnight shipping, so I was gonna order some sprockets. I wanna keep the gearing stock but they've only 45T rears. I'm planning on sticking with the stock 16T front, which they have. Anyone know where I can get a 47T rear and 520 chain at a good price? Or should I just order the 45T sprocket? I wanna keep my fuel consumption either at the same rate or improve it.

Edit: Here are some sprocket choices, what do you all think I should go with?

AFAM front sprockets

JT front and rear sprockets

Sunstar front and rear sprockets

What about these brake pads? Brake pads Do you think they'll work?

There is something wrong. My bike was stock (2002) 41/16. There is no way to be stock 47 at rear. In like the best 41/15 .

Yeah, I figured that out. Maybe that site has a typo. Anyway, the online deal fell through because they don't offer the overnight shipping on tires. I went to a local store and got the tires for the same price, they'll be here in a few days and I can have them mounted at the store for $15 a piece, plus I get a warranty. A win-win situation.

As for sprockets, I'm still looking. Thanx for the info.
