Vortex is JUNK. Don't believe me? Come by the shop and I can show you at leat 10 Vortex sprockets with less than 5000 miles on them that are f ucked.

Driven is AFAM, good stuff, we sell the kit for $180.00, give me a shout if we can help out.

How about supersprox stealth-street sprocket? A best of both worlds sprocket. Aluminum inner with steel teeth.

Driven or AFAM go through a much more thorough hardening process. Vortex is much softer and will literally break teeth quite often.

Supersprox are pretty badass. Not quite as light as an all aluminum counterpart, but pretty light indeed. I've not ran mine long enough to give a good assessment first-hand, but I'm satisfied so far.

Good luck, OP. I'd recommend consulting Patrick for his $180 deal. Sounds pretty good.
