Thats kneedraggers for your chain and sprocket needs, I like to google the part find the lowest price, then call kneedraggers, they will price match if you email them the link.

Cant find a better price right now though.

Tires; Ive ordered from http://www.swmototires.com/, or found online prices, printed them out and had Colemans get close, only if they have them in stock though.

120/60 is not as common as the 120/70, just sayin. I've never tried a 60 on the front.

Your drive ratio with a 37 and 14 will be 2.64. Depending on the transmission of course, that's generally more track/speed oriented set-up. Closer to 3 is a target for street and some wheelies.

I'm not big into the kits because I like AFAM and renthal sprockets. EK makes good chains though. One of their chains is the strongest 520 chain on the market, but I don't remember which one. Stan55 knows.

AWESOME, I'll go with the 70 then... I actually think that was the stock size. What do you think as far as sprocket size? I'm not tracking the bike and have no desire to do wheelies...

I fun the 70 on my 05...no problems. Kneedraggers.com is a good place to deal with, if you're not sure just give them a call and they'll take care of you.

Don, go down one in the front. definitely go with the 70 front. I prefer the DID erv3 chains as I've had good luck with them lasting.

Have everything shipped directly to my place and we'll knock it out. If you don't have the address I'll pm it to you.

Also compare prices from Kneedragers and SportbikeTrack gear. I've used both for years but have found that Sportbiketrack gear is very good.

Yea, have been checking them out... they really beat out Kneedraggers considerably.
