Putting a new protaper chain on factory sprocket

Recommended Posts

I have a 13 kx450 with only about 5 or 6 hrs on it. Do I need to buy sprockets with new pro taper gold link chain or am I ok with slap it on n ride?

I would replace the mediocre OEM sprockets with quality ones. The short life of the stockers will also reduce the lifespan of your nice new chain.

The stock chain is what eats the OEM sprockets. the second I get a new bike home I put a nice

Chain on it before riding and I'll get 30+ hours out of the set, which is pretty good for aluminum sprockets. On a 450 I would just buy a nice chain and steel sprockets if my sprockets were shot, which is what I do once the original set bite the dust.
