I had new tires put on last week and my mechanic said my sprockets are worn. There are so many out there, I was wondering about what's best? Probably replace chain too. Thanks

If you replace the sprockets it's good to replace the chain too. I mount a DID kit (sprockets+chain) on my 600 and it has 25.000km (16k miles, aprox) and is in good condition.

Changing mine now...
;)coffee break... ;)
Chain & sprocket set is the way I do it too...
Key word = set!

JT and DID is this install, I`ve tried many over the years...
Although the Regina chain looks pretty with its gold links, I returned to OEM stuff...
123,000 miles and several sets used...
Bike master didn`t "cut the mustard" neither;)

Ain`t run up on this before with any of the others I`ve used...
BUT this DID came without O-rings for the masterlink???
Double checking instructions, none mentioned???

HMMM???
Puzzling!

JT sprockets and Renthal chains is all I'll use on my dirt bikes. I'm surprised to see DID over Renthal as the preferred choice here. Is it a street bike thing?

JT and DID here also. I've got the x-ring chain. Havent had to adjust it since I put it on a bunch of miles ago. Like 1-1/2 years ago. Still right where it should be.

This is my first DID chain, it was bought for me...
I find chain & sprocket sets on e bay, or order from the local Indy bike shops...
All the sets I`ve bought have JT sprockets with whatever namebrand chain with them...
I think I`ve bought 4?
