Decent chain and sprocket kit - 2nd time using

This is a fine chain and sprocket kit. The only weak spot is the aluminum rear sprocket. I'd go with steel if it wasn't so hard to find / on backorder. You'll wear out your rear sprocket before the chain. This is my 3rd chain on a torquey SV1000S with 56000 miles on it. I replaced the OEM chain ~12,500 miles, so the last chain lasted over 40,000 miles. I only recently started noticing that chain starting to knock on the front sprocket cover on decel. Definitely replace the sprockets with the chain. Even my front sprocket was slightly deformed leading to the chain slipping off and knocking the cover on deceleration.

Decent kit for the price!

Had the counter-shaft and rear sprockets along with the chain installed at the stealership the other day. As expected the chain has stretched to the point of needing tightened after only 300 miles (SV3 chain). This is common with new chains, but everything seems well made. Even after a thorough beating the other day, I haven't warped or broke the rear sprocket, I would assume it'll hold up =)

Best style and finish

I was pleased, for an aluminum sprocket these are super thick and half the weight of the stock sprocket. If you replace your chain and all the sprockets they should last a good long while. Definitely great quality and finish.

Perfect

I recently purchased the 525 pitch to replace the 520 that I'd had for nearly 10k miles. It still had plenty of life but a piece of semi tire chewed the last few thousand out of it. These kits are awesome. I give five stars on everything but ease of install. As for Motosport... I love you guys. I was having issues ordering online so I called. Dave helped me order what I needed and then we were talking about previous rides and scary moments we'd both had. The guys at Motorsport understand riders because they ARE riders... awesome site and people!

So far so good

The only reason I don't rate this product 5 stars is because I just installed it last week, and now I am been asked to rate my purchase ...

Well it is too early to say how durable this chain and sprockets will be but the manufacturing on this items seems very high quality, the install was done by my trusted mechanic he said it was easy, he cut the chain to OEM size. Performance is good where the bike feels strong, snappy, very reactive to throtle (the old chain was loose and it could not be adjusted anymore). Good product so far ... hope this helps.

Awesome setup!

This kit looks awesome, was easy to install and feels much better then the stock chain I had on my bike. I have a 08 cbr1000rr and I've never replaced sprockets/chain before. But it was a breeze. The front sprocket was hard to get off, but once I got a bigger breaker bar it came off with ease.

A: Any of the chains offered in the kit will do, just make sure you get one that's 525 and at least 120 links to make up for the size increase of the rear sprocket.

I have a 96' gsx750f katana, I would like a little to know what set would be best suited for my bike. Cannot seem to find any recommendations. I do like the idea of a quick accel kit but I like top speed more.

Hi, MY QUESTION IS IN THE SPECS BOX AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE IT SAY'S THAT THE CHAIN IS 110 BUT IN THE DROPDOWN BOX THE SMALLEST IS 120 LINKS IS THIS SIZED RIGHT FOR MY APPLICATION?THANKS

A: If you are running stock (OEM) gearing, you will need around 110 links. Chains are not sold in bike specific lengths so you will need to break the chain to the amount of links you need. Here is a link to the chain breakers: http://www.motosport.com/search/?textsearch=Chain+Breaker¤trow=4

Q: Can i order -1 +3?
Over 4 years ago
TheRealRRDemon

Over 4 years ago
A: Going -1 +3 would give you even more acceleration/torque feel at a cost of top end speed. Mind you, any gearing change is going to change your shift points for rpm v. speed from stock as well as "mess up" your speedometer. At least your speedometer will no longer read accurately; it will read higher than actual travel speeds. This will rack up miles faster as well as make you think you are traveling faster than you are. This is also correctable with a speedo-healer (there are various manufacturers for these).

As far as "rideability" goes, -1 +3 should give you a bit more "oomph" and make the ride a bit more fun as well. I would say that -1 +3 is not out of the question or too "over the top".

A: Yes, for your 2008 CBR1000RR we do have this combo available with 15/45 gearing versus the stock 16/42. Please make sure to profile your bike correctly when ordering as these kits are model specific.

Q: How can I get more top end out of bike
Over 5 years ago
have new muffler and I'm adding a power commander, what about sprockets?
Motoxrrar
Over 5 years ago
A: It depends what kind of bike you have. If your looking for more top speed the. You could go down a few teeth on the rear sprocket. If your looking for more power and torque then go up in the rear. I would start in small increments. 650's have less torque than 1 liter bikes so be careful in your choice. Quick acceleration kits are popular for stunting and drag racing.
MotoSportExpert
MotoSport Staff
Over 5 years ago
A: Sprockets are a very good way to modify the output of the engine and give more acceleration or top speed. For top speed you can either increase the amount of teeth on the front sprocket or reduce the amount on the rear sprocket.
Brian
Top 1000 Contributor
Over 5 years ago
A: To make the answer simple, Yes.

NOTE: Adding teeth to the FRONT sprocket has the REVERSE effect on acceleration.

SUBTRACTING from the front sprocket is the same as ADDING to the rear. The closest ratio I can figure for a 600c (In my case, a Yamaha YZF-R6) is -1 in the front is the same as +2 to the rear.)

More teeth on rear sprocket = Faster acceleration, less top end, less fuel economy.

Less teeth on rear = Slower acceleration, higher top end, better fuel economy.

Also, your chain has a (little) bit to do with this. A 525 chain is heavier (yet more durable), thus, it has more mass for the drive to rotate. A lighter (520) chain will make it a bit easier for the bike to pop off the line, but is less durable. If you are commuting on this bike, I would recommend sticking with the stock 525 pitch. It'll last you much longer. Good luck!

Q: Will dropping 2 teeth on front sprocket & go up 3 on back mess up my speedometer on my 2012 Yamaha YZF R-1?
Over 5 years ago
MotoSportExpert

A: Yes this will cause issues with your speedometer to not give you accurate speed readings. To remedy the problem you can purchase and install a Speedo Tuner. They are model specific and plug and play. There is a simple 3-step procedure to regain accurate speedometer and odometer readings within 1% after installation.
Andy
Over 5 years ago
A: Yes, but there's a device called a speedohealer (I believe that's the name) which can address this.

Also, IIRC going down 1 on the front sprocket is roughly the same as going up 2 on the rear, so careful taking a big swing on both. You're going to kill your top end speed, but it will be much easier to wheelie.
TheRealRRDemon
Top 500
Over 5 years ago
A: Any time you change the gearing it will affect your speedometer. I also would not drop 2 in the front as that is the equivalent of about 6 teeth up in the rear. Stick with -1 up front and 2 or 3 up in the back. You can purchase a speedo-healer to calibrate your speedo to the new gearing!

MotoSportExpert

A: This kit would work great on your 2006 Hayabusa. Most of the sport bike kits will have an application for the Hayabusa because of its popularity. The Vortex kits are very good quality so this would not be a bad choice. Just make sure to profile your bike correctly so that you receive the correct sprockets specific to your bike.

Q: If going down 1 tooth in the front and up 2 in the rear gives you better acceleration will doing the opposite give you higher top speed

A: Yes, you are correct. Also helps gas mileage. On my 07 R6 I went with 15f and 47r (stock is 16:45) and the bike leapt off the line but with higher rpm and lower top end. The opposite holds true. Good luck!
MotosportStaff
MotoSport Staff

A: You don't necessarily need to follow that same ratio, but yes the opposite will have the opposite effect. Down on the countershaft sprocket and up on the rear sprocket for acceleration, and up on the countershaft / down on the rear sprocket for top speed.
