I'm getting ready to order a 15 tooth C/S sprocket for my 2014.

Don't really care if it is OE or good aftermarket like JT, Sun, etc.
I'd rather order from eBay as I can usually find ship-fee (free is good!)

Any recommendations on the aftermarket ones?

Thanks for any words of wisdom!

EDIT: Any experience with PBI brand?

I put a PBI 15 tooth on my 2017 TW about 800 miles ago. Quality seems good - haven't had it long enough to know for sure but it seems as good as any. Runs great - feels like the TW was made to have a 15 C/S.

USA (pronounced Ooo Sa) is a small village in China.
Funny, I remember stories of a town in Japan named Usa back when "Made in Japan" was evil.

Seriously, though, are you guys just joking or is there some real reason to question where PBI sprockets are manufactured?

The company is located in Oregon, but for a company that has been in business for 40-years (or is it 30-years?*), it would be nice to see some “history!”

I've used PBI sprockets for years and have no issues with premature wear or poor spline fitment, as I have with some other cheap brands. Supersprox is my other go-to, but their catalog seems kind of spotty when you get into smaller/older bikes. I've had unreal life on a few sets of them on high power sportbikes- got like 40k miles on my Z1000 before the front started to be noticeably egging out (when the stock sprockets/chain were in worse shape at 15k miles).
