View Full Version : Aftermarket Sprocket Kits.. Who has them??
06-30-2009, 03:24 PM
I've been thinking about putting a little bit bigger sprocket on the back of my CBR. I'm just not sure how many teeth i want to add. I don't want to lose my highway rideability, but i want it to be a little easier to clutch up in higher gears, preferrably 2nd or 3rd instead of 1st gear. I was looking at the 54 tooth but dont know if that will make the bike SCREAM on the highways, figured i would ask and see what you guys ride ~post up the type of bike you ride and the sprocket you have as well as some feedback on rideability.~

Not into the whole wheelie thing, but I have -1/+2 (15/45) on my 06 600 with the 520 conversion. Its good for acceleration, but probably not enough teeth if you want to wheelie easier.

i went with a vortex 520 kit -1 front +2 rear the rides still good with great pick up only runs about 500-700 rpms higher then it did maybe like 6000rpms at 70mph in 6th cruisin thats on my f4i im sure you could clutch it up in 2nd

MotoMummy.com has awesome deals on vortex 520 conversion kits.
I'm most likely going with a -1front and a stock rear since my bike def dosent need a +2 rear as well. It's hard enough to keep on the ground on corner exit.

http://www.sumofallparts.net/ they have the kit i want -1 +2 with 520 chain vortex for $160 shipped.

wow that deal for 160 shipped sounds awesome. nad im definatley going with the -1 front +2 rear because my bike is a 92, its not as fast as the newer bikes but still holds its own...i just want a little more jump behind it

I went from Vortex alumium sprockets to Vortex steel sprockets. The weight difference isn't noticable in my accel and its alot stronger. I also have an RK 520 chain. No complaints.
bikebandet.com has kits really cheap for most bikes

just checked out bikebandit.com... might actually go with there kits..seem to be a little cheaper.. anyone else on here stunt in shows or on the side??? im personally not ready for comps yet but feel within the next year i will be. vortex seems to be the company to go with, my brother had there aluminum sprocket and it shredded the teeth off within a year, he rides an 03 636... im most likely to go with the steel kit

Cheap sprockets can shear or wear much faster, go with vortex.

Went from 15-45 to 14-45... big difference. Took about 8mph off the top end but got a lot more fun to ride in the twisties. I recommend it.

haha aftermarket kits for my bike prolly lower the top speed to like 90mph considering it tops out at like 110 now
