AND GEARING WHAT SHOULD I DO AS FAR AS SPROKETS...I WANNA HIT OVER 200 BUT I ALSO WANNA GET THERE AS FAST AS POSSIBLE YA KNOW...AND WHAT IS A 520 CHAIN CONVERSION...HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED

Putting an extended swing arm on the bike is going to make a huge difference since it was designed to use the stock length.
How much of a difference depends solely on the length of the swing-arm. You should really only do that if you plan on using it to drag race. If you plan to ride it on the street get an adjustable swingarm.
As for pushing 220 RWHP, good luck. Its going to cost you alot.
For my 1000RR there are 2 places that offer the parts to hit 220 HP. Both run about $12,000 just for parts.
If you're planning on doing that much and you're asking on an internet forum for answers for the questions you asked, you are obviously fairly ignorant of this kind of stuff (no insult intended.) I suggest that you find an expert in your area to guide you so it comes out correctly and you dont wreck it.

#1. If you`re new to bikes you shouldn`t have bought an 04 R1

#2. If you`re new to bikes you shouldn`t be at 140+mph, let alone trying to take corners at those speeds.

#3. Don`t ask questions about a Yamaha in the Ducati forum, and you`ll probly get alot more replies.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.
