Chain and sprocket choices.

I am looking to replace my chain and sprockets soon. Upgrading to a 520 kit. Just looking for recommendations or reviews on what everyone is using. I have looked at the RK, Pitbul, and Renthal kits. leaning towards the RK or Pitbul kits more, and I think that if CCS has Pitbul contingency money this year they require you to run their sprockets now too, so anyone use them? And how are they?

I'm pretty sure I've got pitbull on mine -1/+2. I got it from Safety First but never looked too closely at it. Don't have enough milage on the new set-up to know about durability but everything felt pretty good just putting around for a few miles.

You wanna see my itinerary?

I've been selling a brand called SUPERSPROX. The kits come with RK chain and the rear sprocket has lifetime warranty. The rear sprocket is 2 peice, inner aluminum hub with heat treated, hardened outer gear. The rear lasts up to 3 times longer than aluminum and is and is about 1/2 the weight of steel gear. I've sold quite a few sets..........people really like them. Let me know what kind of bike and I'll get some pricing for you.

Proud to say I've never owned a Japanese car

I've got the Pitbull sprockets from Kevin. The fronts are rarely an issue. It's usually the rear. He's probably got them in stock for your bike. See if his store is up of call him.

I've been rocking a Supersprox rear and like it. After 2 seasons, it shows minimal wear.
