As zed said the z9 has enough grunt to pull the extra tooth with no issues.

I saw that and believe it is.
Im curiuos to know if it will be comfortable rpm wise, to go on 3rd or 4th without shifting to 5 or 6th gear.
  The way you would drive with the liter sportbike, maximum 3rd gear is still comfy low rpms and enough speed.

Factory is 525. And yes that JT is the correct one if you are staying with the 525 setup.

That will give you a final ratio of 2.75 (2.93 is stock).

If you check the compatability on the Ebay description, it says it's not compatible with the Z900 2017.
