I got this in a 520 set, got 5k hard miles out of it, and rode down to thinner then a tooth pick and no teeth broke off. I wish got more miles out of it, but i ride hard, and run on track, and wheelies etc, i'm actually impressed it held the teeth with out breaking any off as thin as they wore. If your an average rider and want a nice looking sprocket it last you a season or two, but if you ride like an (well ya ) like me then expect 5-6k max

I was thrilled to discover that the Vortex Sprocket was literally HALF the weight of my old steel sprocket. Previous sprocket weighed 3.02lbs. Vortex sprocket was 1.56lbs... Direct fit, no issues with the install. Put a new chain on as well, I've put 400+miles on the set-up. No issues! With the variety of oddball sizes, I think I'll be using vortex again!
I own a 2014 Honda CB500F bought in march of 2015. I commute 50 miles each way on Los Angeles freeways. The stock 41 tooth sprocket is fine for surface street 50/ Freeway 50 but I'm freeway 90 / surface street 10. Dropping 2 teeth off the rear sprocket makes a huge difference on this bike on the freeways. Motosport interestingly is THE ONLY DEALER of aftermarket parts that I can find this item in stock. Vortex is the only manufacturer that has smaller rear sprockets for this bike. They are aluminum and I was able to get just a little over 8000 miles use out of the first one. Props to Motosport for having this and props to vortex for making it. I am one month short of a year with 18, 000 miles on the bike.
I found that 50teeth is the right amount. Couldn't be any happier. It was an easy install as well.
