Places to buy both sprockets and chain?

Im kind of a noob on this topic. I want to understand more about this but don't know exactly where to start. How much does a full set usually cost? I dont to add/minus any teeth on the sprockets, would prefer to keep it stock. Whats a site that sells them so i can start understanding the different type of set ups available.

I bought mine over the internet for $125. I bought one of the RK quick acceleration kits for my bike. New front sprocket (minus 1 tooth), lightweight rear (stock 46 teeth) and a 520 chain (525 stock). I saw Cycle Gear had a few for sale at one of their stores. It was about $50 more than Internet.

Why? because he asked a question about sprockets? I don't get it... not everyone knows everything and anything about bikes... so why not just educate them instead of belittling them?

front sprocket- take away teeth, add acceleration, lose top end
and vise versa

rear sprocket - add teeth, adds acceleration, loses top end...vise versa


if you want a little boost for the street....go with -1 in the front and +2 in the rear and a new chain (525). going with a 520 chain gives an extra edge for acceleration, but you will lose significantly on durability.

if you have a track dedicated bike....a bunch of different gearing combinations will be used at various tracks to get the most out of your bike. most people change their gearing so that they can top out in gear on the longest straight of the track. having a combination of sprockets to use comes in handy when on the track, waste of money for the street.

It's all good, this isn't the first time hes bashed me for something I posted

I had some what of an understanding on how adding/subtracting teeth on either end of the sprocket increased/decreased the acceleration/top end.. and the reason why I wanted to stick to stock is because I'm still not planning on going any faster than the bike already is. It's still more bike than I can handle.. just taking my time with it.

I was planning on buying my set from Patrick anyway. I went there to get the chain slack adjusted and one of the mechanics told me how mine should be replaced very soon. Just waiting till exams are done and I can start with all the bike stuff.

Thanks for all the help guys!
