Default 03 VT750DC Spirit chain and sprocket replacement

Hey guys, I'm new to the site. I ride a VTX 1800 NS2 but my son has a 03 Spirit 750. It's time to change the chain and sprockets. I don't have a manual yet, what would you recommend the Honda or aftermarket. How difficult a job would this be. And last where should I buy the parts from. Stealer wants $200.00 for a chain and sprocket kit. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

check www.bikebandit.com they should have a good price. I would switch to a 39tooth rear sprocket or even a 37 tooth if he only rides solo and never carries a passenger. He will be able to cruise on the highway much easier.

You can get the 37 tooth sprockets through http://www.billski182.com/

Try Billski. Cheaper than bike bandit and really good folks to work with. I put a 38/17 combo with a new chain, it was about 170.00. Also picked up hd clutch springs included in that price. You will want those if you gear up, and trust me, it is much better gearing imho.
Good luck, ride safe.

I'm getting mine here: http://sidewindersprockets.com/honda.html, but have not heard of the clutch spring needing to be replaced.

Can someone shed some light on the clutch spring being replaced. Why and benefits. I've not read that that is necessary, on the post of read until now.

Comments welcomed.
