Do not buy Vortex sprockets!! My buddy just lost 15 teeth on his and Gas has lost some on his Vortex in the past. Get a hardened steel sprocket.

I don't want to give you wrong info on the chain pitch definitions, so I'll let somebody else answer that.

if thats a new 750 in your picture then you should have a 17 tooth front sprocket, and a 42 tooth rear sprocket.

as for the Ebay auction: nowhere does it say who makes the sprockets or what tooth count they are so i would be wary.

it's

a 600 in the pic.

It says on the auction:
The brand name of these sprockets is Thrust Company. They are machined by expert sprocket machinists who have been making sprockets for the largest sprocket companies , OEM's, and government agencies for over 40 years.

ok then a 16t FR and 45t RE.

the auction still doesnt mention tooth count and its without a chain. you can buy the sprockets individually for about the same.

Yes... NO VORTEX!! JUNK JUNK JUNK!!

See my old thread on my dillema at the GAP

Renthal is the best I've ever used! They look great and are hardend alum.

Further... please make sure you replace your chain as well. You can't match old sprockets with a new chain or new sprockets with a old chain.

Get a DiD x-ring chain!

TRUST ME! I didn't get nearly 32,000 posts and not know a few things about this stuff!
