Just wondering what kind of mileage Vortex users are getting from their 520 rear aluminum sprockets?

My neighbor got 3000 miles out of a Vortex aluminum sprocket on his SV650. It was completely trashed at 3000 miles. I would not waste my money on one.

Vortex sprockets are soft... On my RC51, with a 520 setup, I got like 4K out of it and it was FUGGED up when I took it off...

If you want aluminum, try AFAM or any other brand that offers a "hardened" version...

I know 2 guys who describe the same problems w/Vortex aluminum rears.

Have you checked into a Stealth? It has an alum. body and steel teeth.
I know that sprocket center.com carries them , not sure who else does. I have 2K miles on mine and the black hasn't worn off the teeth yet.
