Ok doing a 520 chain conversion and I have a question. Does the lettering on the front sprocket go towards the engine or away from the engine. I can't find anything on it under a google search. I know on the R1 it goes towards the engine and on the CBR600 it goes away from the engine, so I'm not sure on this bike if its towards or away. Thanks for the help!!

It's letters inside for anyone wondering. I found a really old post about a K5 conversion and I confirmed the chain was straight with lip inside and pulled the chain towards the motor with the letters outside facing the outside.

Also the correct way to do it, if anyone is wondering I found out from emailing company, is to measure the distance from the middle of the stock sprocket to the bike with a vernier caliper and lock the setting. Then put the new sprocket on and match it to the vernier caliper. Now, that woulda been great had I not thrown the old sprocket set away right on trash pick up day lol 😌
