Im in need of a new chain, so I figured I,would change my sprokets as well. Im leaning toward the stealth sprokets. So it is stealth vs everyone else, give me pros and cons for the stealth and other alternatives. That rr commumity

Steel lasts longer aluminum and steel is all that I will buy

the best steel sprockets IMO are Superlights

I've always had good luck out of Vortex's. Got 17k on the ones that are on mine right now, a lot of people hate on them saying they are weak etc but I beg to differ haha. I think its more of a personal preference on looks though as a lot of them will last a long time if you stay on top of your tension.

If you want a very long lasting chain kit then yes the stealth would be good. Also for chains look at the ek mvxz and ek zzz 520 chains. Super strong chains. There is no point on running a very long lasting sprocket with a middle of the road chain. Your chain kit will only last long as it's weakest part as well.

I was told to stay away from 520 chains, what is the difference between 520 & 525?

NO ISSUE!!!!!!!!!!! with 520 chains as long as you dont get a super cheap one.

almost everyone on here has one or will get one when their 525 stocker wears out

I went with the rk 520 chain and superspoxs sprocket. just used them at the track yesterday. I had votex before those and they did last too long on the street, and those did see the track.

Getting ready to replace my chain/sprockets for the second time, going with the stealth superprox and ek 520 mvxz chain again. Maybe they will last longer this time I hope, if I do my part, better.

Edit: going to go with the Driven 520 42T rear sprocket solid black after I got a close up look at the new supersprox - colors are UGLY, maybe I'll have it powdercoated. I can't put something that looks like that on MY bike. The black outer has a greenish tint and the gold inner, not going to happen.

What part is that?

The part where you line the chain up perfectly so the chain doesn't wear unevenly and doing proper maintenance with cleaning & lubing. Without these, it doesn't matter what parts you get, they'll be fubared way before they should be.

How long did your Vortex last you? If you don't mind me asking ;)
