Default 520 conv. kit

I am ordering a new chain and sprocket kit, should I just go -1 in the front or also +1 or 2 in the rear?

When I installed a 520 on my '04 1kRR I went -1/+1 and it was nothing short of amazing when launching. If you do any highway travel it can get buzzy around 80mph for any length of time. You'll wanna get a speedo healer and gas mileage will go from "decent for a sportbike" to "damn, I gotta fill up again?"
