I'm sure this has been beat to death but I'm having some trouble finding a chain and sprocket set up. I did a fair amount of research and I kind of already know what I want, I'm just having trouble finding it.
So my question is are there newer model bikes that I could search for that would fit my 7? like newer zx10's, if anyone knows of any deals or links it would really help, thnx guys.

Go 520 chain, any ZX10R rear sprocket is a direct fit to the ZX7 as some manufacturers do not list a ZX7 option.

At this moment in my inebriation I do not recall what crosses over with the front sprocket.

My personal choice was Renthal sprockets and Regina Gold chains.

Thanks Bullitt that should make the search go alot smother, alot of the places I looked just don't list sprokets for the 94 zx7 usually the oldest model I can find is for the 96.
As far as what I'm looking for I was planing on sticking pretty close to the stock set up, I'm not really into wheelies I mostly ride twistys. I thoght I'd do +2 in the back just for a little extra but not planing on going nuts. So I was thinking, 16F 45R and 530 x-ring chain.
What would be the benefit of going with the 520 chain, and draw backs if any?

^ Thanks I've tried there already, I found that link on an old post but the page doesn't work when you try to pick a brand it always goes to an error message.
And I think the 520 chain is the way to go, losing weight sounds worth it especially unsprung weight, how much less life are we talking from a 530?

The chain/ sprocket life isn't that noticeable to even be concerned about.

I recommend 16/45 personally, but 15/45 is the shiznit.
