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

Thanks for the write up. Now that we all know a bit more about sprockets and chains, does anyone have any preferences as far as brands? I ride a R6 2007 and I need to replace the chain + front and rear sprockets.

Thanks again!

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

Thanks for the write up, really informative. Now that we all know a bit more about sprockets and chains, does anyone have any preferences as far as brands go? I ride a R6 2007, I need to replace my chain and both sprockets (front and rear).

Thanks again,

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

Just want to point out that the stock pitch for an 03 R6 is 532. Not 530. Be aware if you decide you want to just replace one gear that you can't do that too easily.

great write up luke.
