Which sprockets/chain?

Anyone has favorites? And any place to order?

Sticking with steel sprockets for the Z, 16T and 42T.

RK and DID are fine choices too. I've only broke a chain (520 on my Honda F2. Can't remember the brand.) once back in '99. I don't really notice a difference with final drive parts like one does with brakes, tires and suspension.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. ~ Buddha

You can go either DID ERV3 520 (yes it's more than strong enough) or the EK ZZZ 520

I would go with the AFAM Superlight steel ones......AFAM makes the best sprockets available on the market.

Yes I stock them.....

all motorcycle chains are roller chains, the orings x rings v rings w rings etc serve as seals to keep lubrication inside the rollers

you do not want a non ring chain thats if you could even get one
