  • Need a good deal on chain & sprokets.

    Anybody know of any good deals online for chain and sprokets for the TL? I'm in need of them badly. My chain is so streched out and crunchy it's becoming dangerous. And my sprokets have become shark toothed with elongated curves. I went to pull away from a light earlier and I thought I broke off some teeth or threw the chain. I've already pulled some links out once and tightned as much as I can. I have an old chain and the stock sproket laying around but I'm not sure if it's big enough and god knows how long that'll last.

      Absolutely. They have better prices than just about anybody, great products, and will send stuff right to your house. You should get the titan tough sprockets if you want some longevity with light weight.

        I just ordered mine from: www.sprocketcenter.com on Friday and from the tracking # it looks like I will have it today. That is fast. I ordered the RK chain tool also.

          Get mine from there also.

          I stuck with steel sprockets though for a long life.
          Zero on that chain tool (got one too) dont ever go back over a rivet once youve pressed it. It will cut the already pressed metal and ruin the master link

              Thanks guys. I just got off the phone with kneedraggers. $175 for both sprokets and an RK X ring. Not bad. I have a Sproket Specialties rear gear now. It's a steel unit Which is great. It's lasted me about 15,000 miles. Unfourtunatley, SS was out of stock on them this time so I had to go with a Vortex. Probablly not gona get anywhere near the same milage but I need it like yesterday so it'll do for now. I should have everything in a couple days so that's cool.

                I've heard Vortex sprockets aren't that tough. You better keep an eye on it. Especially with you going 15K per chain.

                  Sprocket Specialists is the way to go. Best selection, good prices and they're so fast, it's scary. Last set I ordered from them on a Tuesday morning showed up on Thurs afternoon with just standard shipping cost. You can get steel front and rear for around $60. Kiernan racing has a good deal going on DID o-ring chains. You order by the link and it comes with a free rivet style master link:

                  Comes out to $64 for a TLR with 108 links. I've ordered several things from them over the last year and a half and have always had a positive experience.

                    Yeah, I'm deffinatly a fan of Sproket Specialties. They dropshiped my curent sproket within 2 days last time. It was only like $25 too. I wanted another this time but They just didn't have the size I wanted in steel and I needed it real fast. I remember Castor Troy saying a while back that he had a Vortex wear out in 2500 miles or something stupid like that. But I got a good deal on it so I'll use it for now. All those parts are so wore out I'm afraid to ride it. If I grab any decent amount of throttle it skips teeth. My bike is my daily ride so I can't have it throw a chain right now.
