what they say is Renthal is good for race tracks but after that Motorcycle needs new stuff.... because they are aluminum they are not last long than Genuine Honda Sprockets, steel or metal
....
So i quickly changed my mind and bought Genuine Honda Sprockets, not colorful though
Chain: bought D.I.D Professional ORing 525V Gold Black with a master link, hope it's the best :Pray

one more thing i bough Gold Fren Rear Break Pads but Internet reviews about them..... BAD?! :Bang
why? :( i think i should wear them and Post my own experience ???!

Edit:
Pads

My Cam pics coming soon :p

Yup they are stainless steel just like the Honda OEM's and are Japanese.... I like them because they look like renthals... they are quite good... rode to Hikkaduwa and back during the weekend they felt really good. :angel

I spent only 6900 LKR for the whole Kit... 700 Lkr to fix them.. thats half of what you paid and im quite happy... i think the genuine OEM's are too pricey :Bang and you end up paying double just for the brand and not the material! :blast

Thanks... i love that sticker had one on both sides but i use to have a low exhaust and it used to scratch the swing arm :Bang and so had to take the sticker off... and the swing arm looks nasty!

but hey im sure the O-ring wasnt that expensive... when i asked it was some 3000 LKR or around that price.... I wanted the O-ring too but then since i ride quite harsh my chain stretches quite fast and i cant be bothered changing the whole sprocket kit and chain all the time...
so ive decided to use 2 Chains for the life of a single sprocket kit... saving money lol!! :angel

Im using a OEM rear sprocket and a Fuji sprocket at front and that EK 520 chain ... not o ring... i had the OEM O ring chain . it was named as DID... DID 520 was 9000LKR at panchikawatta..using a worn sprocket at rear and a new sprocket on front caused to loose the chain everytime.. i should adjust it every week .. i have a brand new NK sprocket not used.. wanna try it with new chain and sprocket..

I won't go for aluminum chains or sprocket.. for me much better stick with OEM or any aftermarket steel parts

yeah they don't look good but gives you better quality..

aluminum softer than steel...

just me...

Yup aluminium wears really fast. I recently changed my chains and sprockets. I just needed something that worked since i used my bike as my work horse, i use it everyday actually.
This is what i went for, Stainless steel sprockets and EK chain... used it for about 4000km now and i think it does the job :angel

and what it looks like on the bike

It looked too fancy plus costs alot more... just needed something that could do the job, wouldnt cost much and easily replaceable.

Genuine front sprocket has two rubber parts attached to both sides, it'll give you more silent drive than other sprockets
Today i have change mine to THAT front and SuperSpokx Stealth 52T Gold-Black Rear which has aluminum inner and steel Outer
very fancy, expensive, strong and light weight
Front: Genuine 14T
Rear: SuperSprox Stealth 52T
Chain: DID Oring 120L GOLD

Feel like i'm walking on air :love
i hear nothing, its all about front sprocket with rubber plates on both side. no sound at all and acceleration is really great. YES i have to change all gears pretty soon but i didn't notice anything about loosing top speed. its because i am in a town where has no Hwy, no straight roads, all bend.. max <1Km straight
i'll update top speed as soon as i get to a main road but right now THIS rear is pretty awesome. when i accelerate on 1st, 2nd gear i see all the weight go back and front forks stretch and getting ready to front wheel up in anytime :copper

Remember, if you use the original speedo, the indicated speed will be way off now. As far as I know the speedo is mechanically connected to the front sprocket. At any time and in any gear your front sprocket would have to spin about 15% more revolutions/time with your new (larger) rear sprocket to achieve the same actual road speed as with your old (smaller) rear sprocket. Maybe check your real speed with a GPS device.
