i need chain and front sprocket for the dirtbike. preferably the heaviest guage i can fit.


whatever you do, don't buy a cheap chain. they will constantly need tightening and need replacing MUCH sooner. buy an expensive one and it works out cheaper in the long run, plus you don't have to tighten the damn thing every time you go for a ride

Just buy an O-ring chain and it should last up to 20000 k's with proper maintenance. Try Cycletreads on Barrys Point Rd. Takapuna. Change the sprockets too because wore sprockets will wear out the new chain fast.

You can take the chain off my Bandit if it'll fit :rolleyes:

Im going to get a cheap heavy duty job for the dr soon, i'd recommend cycletreads for it, but you could give the guys at wild west a call to see what they price up

Well if you can afford the X-ring then go for it....more expensive and last 50% longer than o-rings. But for a FXR i think the O-ring is sufficient.
