RK sprockets

I have an opprtunity to purchase an RK 520 conversion kit brand new for 100 bucks. I heard their chains are decent but what about the sprockets? Keep in mind that I'm only paying 100 bucks for the whole thing. TIA

Are the new sprockets steel or aluminum? If your stock chain is 530, the 520 will be lighter. But it won't be as strong or last as long. The 101 Sportbike Project book gives a detailed description of this project.

Thanks people. i actually looked at the kit in person and I believe they are vortex but the guy said RK. Regardless, I'm buyin them. Yeah this guy has a deal for active duty military. I pay what he pays for products. Only for Honda's and Yam's though. I'm gonna be doin a lot of business with him, I can feel it.
