There is a lot of information on the subject at this website. Hardly anyone buys this setup because it's expensive. The chain will outlast your bike. well, unless you are running nitro at the dragstrip. It would be a good setup for a rider who makes a lot of long distance rides. It's too expensive for me and a little overkill imo. You did say the best.

Just take hammerheads advice
good shit clark

BULLDOG I have a vortex front 17tooth and a 43 supersprox stealth on the back, teamed up with a TS 11,000lb 00 stretch Sigma 530 chain, seems nice.

audioboyz I have a -1 Vortex in the front and a +2 Vortex in the back.It's a little much.Not shreading the back tire like I thought.Pilot Power 2CT with 1700 miles that looks like new.Gas mileage went from 35 to 32.But I think I'm going back to the stock rear.Not worrying about wear.Only have 4100 miles on the bike.

jamesfs912 Definetly go with a supersprox sprocket(heard good things) and a D.I.D x ring chain. Use a zephyr front sprocket if you want to go -1 up front.

Best Chain & Sprockets

Guys I'm going to replace my chain and sprockets this winter because I will have 15,000 miles on them and at times I love the 160 to 180 MPH blasts and don't want to take any chances of a drive train failure....What do you think the best chain and sprockets are? I'm running a Vortex rear with the stock front now.....I'm all about the light weight but don't want to sacrifice strength and safety because of it....Like to hear your thoughts???
