    OEM only?
    Or is some after market just as good and cheaper?
    Non communist made sprocket and chains of top quality? for the f800GS.

    You can try JT Sprockets. High quality and not very expensive.

    For the chain you can check Regina, RK, D.I.D

    I'm running the 17T from TouraTech. Put it on at about 12k miles and it looked so good when I replaced the stock chain at 26k that I left it there. Haven't noticed any shaft damage.

    I've got the 18T AFAM. the quality looks great but it was a bitch to get it on. And a lost cause trying to get it off without a puller. Way too snug.
