Hi....I wanted to put on a larger rear sprocket when replacing the set...but could only find a 49 tooth ! and found it could only be done larger by changing to a 520 chain set up...Have heard since there was an Africa Twin that had a 52 tooth special...I settled for 15/49 and stuck with the 525 chain.
Are you planning some serious offroading? I ran 14 to 47 on my '03 650 and it worked great for me on sand and gravel with about 20kg of camping gear, spare fuel etc. Also worked well for 2 up touring with a similar load in top box and soft panniers.
