i put a supersprox front and rear on my 01 sv and im happy with it. they are designed to not wear out like stock or most aftermarket does after the thousands of miles pile up. it costs a little more than stock, but its the last sprocket you will need to buy for that bike.

i rode on the vortex that i got with my sv for around 10k miles. it was not good when i got it, and losing teeth like a journeyman meth addict when i changed to the supersprox. the supersprox cant be a whole lot more than the vortex and its a much better product from what i have seen
