Ok got my parts this morning. Got Vortex Sprockets and Tsubaki Chain. Too keep cost down (have to buy new rear tire also) gonna have to install sprockets/chain myself. Just loosen old sprockets and install new ones. Old chain is rivet type. so use some bolt cutters to cut it off. Install new chain with spring clip. Adjust then roll right. Also the new chain is 110 links. Not sure about size of old chain but stock was 16/43, new set up is 15/43, how will this change affect the links?

Call me if you have questions. I just did this last weekend. If you don't have an air ratchet....with the old chain still in tact and semi tight....put the bike in neutral and have someone else (preferably someone with some weight and muscle) press on the front and rear brakes while trying to break the nut loose. Also, there is a "lock washer" behind the nut that "folds" over the nut to keep it from coming loose while the bike is being operated. Make sure to use a hammer and chizzel or flat head screwdriver to "unfold this washer". Make sure when you install the nut back on the front sprocket that you fold it back over. I wouldn't want to see what happens if that front sprocket comes loose while you're doing a high rate of speed. hit me up if you have questions 713-249-3193

Thanks for the info, but wasn't too sure about the chain, so took it to Patrick and M/U and they took care of it for me. Great job too. of a install price, save over $50 compared to local shops. Went ahead and bought new rear tire and new Teknic gloves as well. Once again, Patrick and M/U to the rescue!
