That depends on how rough you are on them. If you are doing nothing but wheelies, then you will be adding more stress to the rear sprockets. They should last more then a year though. We have an R1 with 10,000 miles on the Vortex rear sprocket and it looks brand new still.

I have one of the 520 conversions from vortex on my bike and it has about 3000 miles on the sprockets, and they still look great. I am running a EK chain instead of the chain that comes with the kit, but I can tell you I used to have a driven rear sprocket on my ninja and it ate right up, and I switch it over to a vortex as well. I think you will be happy with it. I am not a fan of vortex from issues I had with one of there gas caps on my ninja, but I won't knock the sprockets.

i had a vortex aluminum sprocket & i wasnt satisfied w/ it. got chewed up in less than 5k but i guess i dont really like any aluminum sprockets so i went back to steel

That's what i have on my 04 R6 and I have had no problems out of them. As long as you take care of them they should last. I have about 7K on mine and they are still in good shape.
