Changed my chain and sprocket today.

well I managed to change out my chain and sprocket with a buddies help today... I went one down on the front sprocket to give her a little more quickness off the line... I am more of a twisties kind of guy and not as big on the 180 highway runs so I don't mind losing a bit of top end......

I went with a 520 chain conversion and a RK chain and vortek black aluminum rear sprocket....

I love wrenchin on the bike makes you appreciate her a bit more.........

I ordered it through bike bandit dot com. not too bad only $6 shipping and $146 for the two sprockets and chain.

dont expect long life out of the rear sprocket. youll prolly get to wrench on it again this winter by puttin a new sprocket on it again. good to hear you tackeled it no problem though.

Yeah Vortex suck! But :clap on a good job done!

Did you use the right tool to put on the replaceable link?

This is why Vortex sucks!
