Chain and Sprockets

How many miles are you guys getting out of the OEM chain and sprocket? I have around 3500 miles on my bike and it is starting to show some wear.
Is there anyone making tri metal sprockets for it? I can't seem to find one.
I wonder if sidewinder makes tit ones? They make super nice stuff (emailed, waiting for response).

Thanks

Mine too, I'm planning on replacing sprockets and chain no later than mid-September, which should be at around 4000 miles. I was planning on useing a Tsubaki alpha-gold chain but was hoping that I could come up with a quality aftermarket set of spockets. (not aluminum)

Sidewinder has a 50 tooth that will fit it but you need th get tapered sprocket bolts. I'm waiting on the bolts now. This is the part # for the Titanium II guarantee for life. 7201T-50.($169.99) It's not cheep but I like things guarantee for life and I'm only 2,000 miles from needing my third OEM at $50 a pop. They also have one for the front. I have yet to put them on so I can not say 100% it will fit but I did send them an old sprocket to match it to. Once I do I will post pic's here.

Please do an update when you get this stuff installed.

I'm heading for 5,000 miles and its....Ok,...Rather spend the bucks up front once than many times down the road...

Nope I actually bought it used from Crankshaft and it feels taller than stock. I am pretty short but getting use to not being able to touch the ground

More Gas tank stuff

I know that this topic has been worn out but I thought I'd show what my solution is. I have been massaging this thing for about a week and now have it to where I like it.
As soon as I get my blue anodized fill cap, I will make my fill bung and cut it in. Then I will be finished.
It holds exactly 1 gallon. Not enough for some but I'm comfortable with it. That will get my range up to 175 miles, I'm ok with that.
Keep in mind that this is not finished, that's why the top is still sealed. Oh BTW it is all aluminum.


You can see that I have plenty of clearance.



I had to trim the plastic just a tadd but it matches the contours of the bike

And it doesn't stick out too far.


I'll post the finished product as soon as I get the fill bung in.
