I aswell as all the bridgend boyo's use a Tallon front(£12) & a Supersprox rear(£52) with a DID super heavy duty chain(£80), theres no point in looking for cheap deals you'd be better off just buying the best 1st as last, I went thru 3 fronts & 2 chains in a year, & the rear sprocket also did the snowrun & aswell as the welsh 2 day with denetws riding he also took it to Romania to finish it off, I wont buy anything else, but what i think is good might be not be for others matey.

Running a DID VT2 at the moment stretch slack seems minimal on close inspection so think i'm just gonna get a rear for the moment then change the lot next time around

Your wasting your money just buying a new sprocket the old chain will wear the sprocket out in no time, and probably end up snapping the old chain to if your unlucky.

I use the DID VX2 and super stealth sprockets the last set did over 2700 miles.
To put it into comparison
The original ktm chain and sprocket what ever make it was did less than a 1000

I've got a genuine ktm rear at the moment, not sure on mileage but 3 teeth down following Jams, I think its time for a change.
