If you're going up from 45 I'd say the answer is no, you should have enough adjustment in the chain tensioners to accomodate two teeth (that's one link on the chain). However . . . it's always a good time to change chain and front sprocket to 520 gear when you're doing a sprocket switch! New stuff is just so . . . clean!

I like DID chains, AFAM sprockets. Sprocket Specialists stuff, rot away quickly (in less than 4k miles, even with the Titan Tough Coating).

Renthal hard anodised sprockets are the business... Look good, work well, weigh nothing. I'm amazed by how well mine is wearing, you'd expect an ally sprocket to hook much faster but it's still in great shape after something like 7000 miles. Then again I have a scottoiler so that'd help. I'm using a Tsubaki gold chain with that which goes round and round and is shiny, and otherwise is pretty much just another chain.

+1! I just completely shredded an aluminum Sprocket Specialists 520 rear in about that mileage. Back to 525 & steel for me.

P.S. I bought mine from 2wheeljunkie.com and can't say enough good things about 'em. Rob worked with me to get exactly what I wanted although he didn't have it listed on the website. Good RK chain, Sun front & rear sprockets for $175, plus shipping but minus 10% SVR discount.
