yes, and yes.

If not, find an aluminum with hard anodizing.

Safe your money and just buy a steel sprocket.
It MIGHT be 4 oz. heavier but it's less expensive.

I'm fixing to do the same thing pretty much. I think I've decided to do a 520 conversion w/ a steel sprocket, -1 in the front and stock in the back. I'm not sure about what brands are good. I've heard of Vortex and Driven, but I guess I'll look into Supersprox also. What do y'all think, as far as brands go, for chains and sprockets?

Ah, yes. Throughout my time here at MH I've not only heard nothing but good things about him, but through his posts have come to realize that he is a very knowledgeable and contributing member. But Motorcycles Unlimited is so far away, I don't want to call for advice and then not order from him. I did buy an alarm from Motorcycles Unlimited about a year ago, but haven't made the trek that way since. But I do like to support the local businesses so I'll prolly order through Whoopies... He's a sponsor on here as well. I got some tires from him and he was very helpful. And close.

But yeah... Patrick dominates the north.

I've used steel, aluminum, and then SuperSprox- the Supersprox RULE!

Our endurance team uses them, and there are two rears that they have used for 3 seasons... in EVERY CMRA Endurance round. Check the results for the LSTD endurance team in the cmraracing.com board for the past 3 seasons to see the results.

The best thing about the SuperSprox is that they are almost as light as the 520 aluminum sprocket, but wear like the steel! Win-Win!

I can get you discount pricing on them if you are interested. The real value is that you'll get a light sprocket, and it's the last one you'll need to buy.

I also have heard of, and had good results with them, that being said whats wrong with a good old fashioned steel sprocket? they may a few ounces more but they hold up well and we are dealing with 400+lbs what is an extra 1 or 2 gonna make? aluminum sprockets suck, I have shredded a few and will never buy them

Thanks for all the advice I went with Supersprox! I found one for $70 with free shipping and no sales tax. It was about $20 more but think it will be worth it.
