Frequent question: Who makes the best motorcycle sprockets?

Are JT sprockets any good?

Registered. JT sprocket is an OEM supplier, good quality at a cheap price, can’t go wrong with it.

What sprocket is best for speed?

For more top end and faster top speed, use a large countershaft/front sprocket or smaller rear sprocket. This creates a taller gearing ratio that’s best for high speed situations without many tight turns like wide open desert racing.

Which material is best for sprocket?

Steel is stronger and slightly cheaper but aluminium is lighter and more attractive. For durability and longevity there is no doubt that a steel sprocket is best. Specifically, an induction hardened steel rear sprocket is strongest and will last the longest.

How long does a motorcycle chain last?

Replacing your chain regularly can prolong the life of your drivetrain. Most mechanics agree that you should replace your chain about every 2,000 to 3,000 miles, depending on your riding style. Many Tour De France riders wear out two or even three chains on their primary bike over the course of the three-week race.

Where are JT sprockets manufactured?

That’s not surprising when you learn that JT produces 18 million sprockets a year, with more than 700,000 of them in stock at the London and Atlanta, GA.

IT IS IMPORTANT:  Best answer: What is the markup on motorcycles?

Is more teeth on a sprocket better?

The two sprockets are measured by their number of teeth. As a quick rule of thumb, the more teeth on the rear sprocket, the lower the gearing. Conversely, the fewer teeth on the countershaft sprocket, the lower the gearing.

Is a sprocket with more teeth faster?

Substituting a larger front or smaller rear sprocket lowers the ratio (sometimes called “taller” gearing), resulting in more speed for a given engine rpm. Likewise, a smaller front or larger rear sprocket gives less speed for a given rpm (“shorter” gearing).

Does changing sprockets affect speedometer?

Most new bikes have the speedo driven off the output shaft of the tranny. Changing the sprocket gearing will definitely effect both the speed indicated and miles ridden.

What material is gear manufacturing?

Gears can be made of all sorts of materials, including many types of steel, brass, bronze, cast iron, ductile iron, aluminum, powdered metals, and plastics. Steel is the most common material overall, although over the years, we’ve worked with all of the material types mentioned.

What are sprockets made from?

Sprockets are used for various different applications including bicycles, cars, motorcycles, tools and other machinery. They’re often made from steel, which is hardwearing so it increases longevity.
