Those are a great all around tire. I went through a few sets. Tires, I always found were cheaper on rockymountain atv and chain and sprocket kits were the cheapest on motomummy for steel driven sprockets and did chains.

It's nice one stop shopping. But to save money I cherry pick sellers

Shipping is usually fast with them also. That chain and sprocket seems damn cheap. Are the steel sprockets? I know the good did chains are $180

ok striking out on the chain and sprocket set . I guess yam isnt making them anymore. And I found the DIDzvm-xg but Fz1 not listed as a compatible bike .

Does the make suggested matter ? or can I just search for DIDZVM-XG 530X116 ?

This is the first time Ive had to change the chain and sprockets so not sure what I need .

That I'm not sure. But at that sale price I think it would be worth the money.

Just had a thread about this. http://www.chaparral-racing.com/prod...d-077-kit.aspx

full set of Roadsmart 2s for $181. Yeah, incredible.


Personally I use a JT chain and sprocket kit. Their X-Ring X1R chain is same rating at the DID OEM (8300lbs). Last one lasted me around 14K, and I suck at chain cleaning, I just lube it, never clean it. Both together is under $150. Ebay has em free shipping. Amazon as well.

I just checked the tensile strength of the VX chain and it is allegedly on average 9220lbs . So pretty close . I already ordered it I'll definitely check it out next go round.

I wanted to try the pirelli angels I heard they are a really great tire if you can get them for a good price. rockymtn had them shipped for 258 . A bit more than the roadsmart 2's there I can see . I hear the angels have better grip . The roadsmart 2 will probably outlast the gt due to the gt compound though . We'll see .

Ill keep the Roadsmarts on the list for the next set .

I also have a set of the Angel GTs and am excited to try them after this S21/Roadsmart2 combo. I will say the Angel GT has a extremely supple carcass compared to the RS2 or T30. I saw a review and the Angel GT has only a dual compound and the harder compound is less than 2 inchs wide in the middle. So it should be a stick sticky tire while getting decent mileage. Enjoy!

I was getting close to 8k out of the rear on my gen1. With lots of wheelies and a few burnouts. I think my father might milk out over 10k with his on his fjr.

Well at this point anything will be an improvement over the now 15yo battleaxes that are on it now lol I was trying to burn the chicken strips off but honestly Im scared lol Them strips are still hard slick and slippery from sitting for 10 years .

And the rear has plateaued so crazy it feels like im tranversing uneven concrete when I lean .

Im honestly suprised I didnt have any accidents with the shape those tires are in cupped out too .

Just waiting on the Angels and chain and sprocket set to get here in the mail .

Let my pain and suffering be a deterrent to riding any more until you get your chain and sprockets installed.... see here: http://www.yamahafz1oa.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=129143
