I always have ran an eK chain with driven sprockets! DID makes good chains too and vortex sprockets people like. I ate a few teeth off a vortex sprocket before so i haven't tried them since

What do you consider long lasting? I routinely get 14,000+ grueling merciless track only miles out of my alloy sprockets...

Like I do with just about everything motorcycle related that comes up in a repetitive internet forum setting I put my thoughts down for all to see.

Nice article as always, LDH. Only one error in it. The OEM chain size for the ZX-10R is 525, not 530 as the article indicates. Converting up to a 530 size or down to a 520 size is somewhat lost in the wording in that.

EK MVXZ chains are great.

And just about any sprocket will work other than SUPERSPROX. Don't waste your money on those contraptions. Steel for longevity, aluminum for performance and replace them sooner.

Yea I copied that article from my 1000RR site and made tiny changes in regards to the Kawi. I thought I had put a disclaimer in it as such, but I may have omitted it somewhere along the line. I'll check it when it slows down later today.
