RK Z Ring

Use stock sizes. Go with an aluminum rear sprocket.

a few days in impound will not cause that much rust. my honda stuntbike sits outside in the weather 50% of the time and has very little/no rust on a two year old chain.

Why should aluminum sprockets be avoided for street use? I'm not being facetious, I really don't know. I thought they were lighter than the steel sprockets, and they sure do cost alot more.

Also, I've seen diagrams that show the mechanical difference between 'O', 'X', and maybe 'Z' ring chains, but what's the difference in everyday terms. Are some better for certain applications or are they each just different performance-wise?

the weight savings in aluminum sprockets are minimal for street use, and the wear properties of steel far outway the wieght savings you may gain

I definately noticed the difference with an AL rear sprocket. Will the AL sprocket outlive the chain? You should replace sprockets and chain at the same time so does life expectancy really matter?

This is what I was thinking in regard to aluminum sprockets. I figured that the fast-wear properties of the AL. sprocket would be it's drawback for street use, but would it wear out as fast as the chain? I eat chains on the busa.

if you get aluminum sprockets make sure they are hard anodized. not fancy foo foo color anodized, but hard anodized.
