    Comments about RK/Vortex Motorcycle Chain & Sprocket Kit:

    Great for the money. The teeth ratio didn't change on my Zx9r, but it was still a good option. The rear sprocket is very light, but is made out of aluminum so it will need to replaced before the other components wear out. If you are a racer and only use your bike during the summer for the track then it's fine, but as a commuter having the life of the rear sprocket cut in half is not as great. Overall though, I would recommend to my friends who are avid summer racers. Commuters, that aluminum rear is really off putting.

    the RX gold xo-ring chain and vortex sprocket set is very high quality. went togeather perfect. very happy with its performance.
    Recieved my order, fast no problems.
    *note, these chains are high performance racing chains and need a chain cutter/riviting tool to connect the master link.

      Comments about RK/Vortex Motorcycle Chain & Sprocket Kit:

      Rivet chain tool needed. Got one, and it worked quite easily. All parts fit perfectly for the listed application. Since I work alone, I found it extremely helpful to use a ratcheting tie-down strap to hang the back wheel from the passenger seat so I could align the wheel, brake, swingarm, and spacers to insert the axle bolt. The chain works smooth and quiet (compared to the worn-out chain.) All the parts look real nice even though I didn't pay extra for gold plated chain or black sprocket. I'm quite happy with this kit.

        Does this brand carry a 16/43 with a 520 chain for my 2005 CBR600RR? I didn't see it in the order menu. Thank you

          A:

          Thank you for your question. The quick acceleration kits only offer a 15T-43T with a 520 chain. In order to get the ratio desired you may have to order the parts separately.(individually and not from a kit). Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at Sales@bikebandit.com, Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.

      • Q:

        hello. I have a problem I hope can help me. I have to replace the chain and rear sprocket and front of my SV 650 2005. I'm confused. because my bike now has 15 teeth in front sprocket. 44 rear sprocket. the kits for sale (chain and sprocket) are 14 front / 45 rear. what is the difference of using sprocket teeth 15/44 or 14/45? .

          A:

          Thank you for your question. This RK kit is a quick acceleration kit. There is a set of aluminum sprockets for better throttle response. The rear sprocket has one more tooth also to add torque and response to your bike. A real noticable differance in power increase.

      • Q:

        I received a link from BikeBandit to my inquiry about chain sprocket kit for my 2003 Honda CBR600F4i but can't find the 48t rear sprocket. Does RK have a front 15T / rear 48T kit? I wanted to use 525 chain but was told only available in 520. I can't even find the 520 chain kit in the gear ratio I'm looking for.
