Re: Definitive: Chain & Sprocket thread........

Thanks ET.

Came down to the choice of an aftermarket 530 DID 116 link chain + JT sprocket set --versus-- 532 OEM 116 link chain and sprocket. Decided to purchase all OEM.

$168

Curious whether there really is any difference between the above two. (besides the price)
For the curious, people claim that the 530 and 532 sprockets and chains are interchangeable.
Whether or not that is true, I'd expect some increase in wear.

This was my OEM parts list...
  • Sprocket, Driven (48T)
    5SL-25448-20-00
  • Sprocket, Drive (16T)
    5SL-17460-00-00
  • Chain (Did532zlvka1-L116)
    9Y581-55115-00
  • Joint, Chain
    94681-55031-00
  • Washer, Lock
    90215-21290-00
  • Nut
    90179-18006-00
  • Guide, Chain (near drive sprocket)
    5SL-22187-00-00
  • Seal, Guard (swing arm chain guide)
    5SL-22151-00-00

The manufacturer part numbers are different on those listings. Not sure what that means but it explains the price. Those sprockets appear to be cheap China crap. I am hoping that is not what you got. Amazon is known for that sort of stunt. It doesn't even look like a DID box. Probably counterfeit goods.

Re: Definitive: Chain & Sprocket thread........

Having many prior negative experiences with aftermarket parts in general, is why I generally stick with OEM. Not only has OEM not failed in over 50k, but can continue going on it.

I had already determined from searches, that DID sprockets don't exist. The sprockets are "JT". Had searched for negative comments on them but didn't run across any. The sprockets come in separate packaging from the chain. The photo is generic; not unusual for websites and is why completely different sellers will show the exact same photos.

Confirmed, part numbers for 2001 and 2004 for example are different. They may have made changes to account for the increases in power over the years.

Re: Definitive: Chain & Sprocket thread........

I stand corrected. I hit up one of my contacts and they said that is (probably) a legit kit. DID chain and sprocket kits come in a square box like that. I have never seen them before.
I know generic photos are used widely, but it is also not unusual for counterfeit parts to be sold on the Zon. I am wary of anything on there unless I already have a relationship with the fulfillment company. Everything from brake pads to hand bags are sold as "genuine" but are fakes sold on the Zon.
