    Sprockets. ....brand wise

    Just curious , what brand of replacement sprockets do folks use when they replace the front and rear ?. I've read good and bad things for certain brands. TIA

    I've had great luck with JT Sprockets for my TW and other bikes. They are priced right, seem to be well made and last for thousands of miles. I've used them on my TW, VStrom and SV650.
    Mel and grewen like this.

    JT are probably the best replacement sprockets.
    Supersprox are the best ,lightweight and durable, if there is no budget limit.

    Thank you for the response. I searched with no luck on where Sunstar and JT sprockets are made......country wise. I'll find it at some point.

    If quality is your concern,JT are very good ones. I think most are made in Thailand(JOM THAI is the complete name).
    It's the biggest sprocket manufacturer in the world.

    Thank you for the additional responses, much appreciated. Just trying to research sprockets prior too purchasing. Do not want any unpleasant surprises.....such as , having to use washers etc to make the sprocket fit properly. TIA

    PBI's are US made and if you shop around, can be had for pretty reasonable prices. Look on ebay. I think I got a 15T front sprocket from PBI for like $12.

    Supersprox are also top quality and I believe US made as well, their main selling point is the hybrid aluminum hub/steel teeth on the rears to save a bit of weight/look cool and they claim a special alloy on the fronts to deal with mega HP bikes. I'd think these are kind of overkill for a 12hp TW, but hey whatever floats your boat. I can attest to their durability in those applications, I got close to 30k out of a set on a Z1000 that I generally rode like I'd just stolen it that was feeding 140hp to the wheel.

    JT is generally my go-to for anything else. They're cheap, never had any issues with fitment or premature wear.
