Re: Best Chain and Sprocket Brands?
Last I heard and also have on my R1, the EK3D 520 is the 520 chain to have. The tensile strength is stronger then some reputable 530. If you want to compromise, they now sell light weight steel sprockets, I have the driven ones on my R1. If you go on my CBR thread build, somewhere in there I compare the weight of the light weight steel and aluminum sprocket on a scale. The Ek3D set was almost $300 while the vortex set on my cbr was like half the price. Next go around, I'm putting 520 aluminum on the R1, the weight saving was just too promising.
