What about the set offered at ROCKY MOUNTAIN  (Primary Drive) any good ?


Primary drive are great. Get steel front and rear sprockets and an O-ring or X-ring chain. They last a long time and are relatively cheap. Been using them for years.

I run jt steel sprockets front and rear and a jt xring chain. whole deal coats about 100 and they have a large selection of sprocket sizes.

I haven't run mine yet, but this is what I will be using. it is a 520

so I got some screaming deal, on the chain, BUT it is crazy long.... it was $20 but has 150 links! it's cool though, I have some extra practice links to figure out how to properly press the rivets.

 

I did get the motion pro PBR. I like it, feels like a good unit. I removed my old chain with it, after grinding off the pin heads first with an angle grinder

So far so good, seems to be holding up very well. About 8k miles, 2 adjustments (at most, who keeps track of this?) I'm running stock rear and 14 tooth front, all dirt miles.

$20.00 for 150 pin chain!! Sounds more like a chain for lifting than a high speed roller drive chain.  Internet or out of the trunk of a car in a back alley?

I was kinda thinking the same thing.. last non O ring chain I had caused some major issues on a multi state tour. Would never get another non O ring chain..

You can loosen it up and move it farther inboard on the splines

Your shifter is out too far . There is a groove inboard on the shaft made for the shifter bolt ot pass and prevent the shifter from ever sliding off , even if it's loose .

A HammerHead shifter ? Doesn't fit when installed all the way ?

 

I bought one set of Primary Drive sprocket & chain for my Raptor going out sand duning , the set was 70% shot in one day of riding(that quad and conditions is extreme but showed quickly weeds out lesser components) . Last set I've ever tried and switched to DID chain and JT or Sunstar sprockets , can't remember the last time I had to actually tighten the adjusters on anything , even in the dunes .

I have the same shifter but i could put it in. Without removing the bolt. Usually it need to be removed completly to put the shifter in , align with groove and screw it in . but not here..

After time the shifter comes loose , stretches and have even seen the splines wear out that the shifter don't shit ! Should check tightness of bolt  every few rides, also bolt will wear, had to change mine.
