    Good to hear you feel it more. Although that latest model I sent you was a lot harder urethane than the sprocket in the picture you sent. By the way I am still waiting to receive the old sprocket for inspection when you get time.

    Thank

    yes sorry Ryan ... I been busy riding and now do a reno on the house .. I will get to it mate :D

    I think this nxt version is better ...like I said 1k on it and so far so good ...but time will tell ..........im not confident in running this on a extended remote trip unless I took a backup ....this would change more with more klms done

    Wish i had it on this big lap i am doing but i had to order a steely for my ride home so nothing to report from 5600k into the ride. Looks like they turned up in stock just after i left Cairns. Next time.

    Ken is mobile.

    Yep. I'm just waiting for a little bit of refinement and I'll be onboard. These things will be "the bee's knees" when the kinks get sorted out.

    I bought one a couple of months ago for my XR650L. I have about 200 miles on it both pavement and dirt riding. I have been treating it like the original sprocket, not easy on it. So far so good. I really notice a diifferance on the pavement, smoother power dielivery.
    The thing is really light weight, very suprised and the build quility is really good.

    so, 460km later, all good so far
    instantly felt better / smoother on the bitumen, which included some high speed transport sections
