Hey guys, I know there are TONS of threads on here about which sprockets are best and all of that and I have searched but still haven't gotten the answer I'm looking for.

I've seen a lot of hate against Vortex sprockets, however my friend has an 07 ZX-6 ninja and he only put on a front Vortex (dropped a tooth) and he has beat the shit out of it doing wheelies and it hasn't failed him yet, so if people are against Vortex, what is the best sprockets to get, I want to get a 520 chain and sprocket kit all together because it all needs replaced. So, do I order Vortex, or what else is good, I've searched around like I said but I want more opinions. Thanks in advance!

Anything can be broken if used inproperly, but i think most people bad mouth the Vortex Rr sprockets.Being they are aluminum.The Fr is hardend steel.That said i have both Fr/Rr Vortex sprockets on both my bikes.The rears are the black anodized version.Ive had no problems with premature wear or chipped teeth, but then again Im not beating the hell out of them.Chains are DID 530 & RK 520 .

I've had Vortex and they've been fine. I just make sure the chain is always properly tightened, cleaned and lubed.

I also use an RK 520
