Exclamation Best chain, and sprockets???

I am looking to change out the chain, and sprockets on both bikes< see bike list. I do not want to change the oem gearing. Should I go x-ring, o-ring? I have a chain tool. Please help, feed back is welcome, except from Umayr.
Thanks!

X ring is just a marketing gimmick

Ek & Rk are both pretty good Did is overpriced usually.

Back on a GSXR!!! 08 600









I put the did x ring gold chain on the GSXR. Did some research then but forgot it all lol. Keep stock pitch on the cbr since it's the street bike and steel sprockets, not aluminum. For the GSXR may try out 520 and aluminum if your still mostly using it for track.

I was thinking stay with steel for the Honda. Thanks! My wife is riding the 600 mostly, so the 520 would make sense.

I am sure the locals will have one, but if not motomummy has the driven kits. Hard hanodized steel sprockets if you decide on the 520. They also have the EK, RK, and DID chains.
