I need to buy a new rear sprocket for my YZ426, and I've seen a couple of on-line places offer "JT" Sprockets. They are steel sprockets and run anywhere from $19-$25 dollars. Are they good, junk or indifferent ?? I have never heard of this brand before. I'm looking for durability not light weight or anything special. The price is attractive compared to a Renthal at $49, and Sunstar which is a special order for the number of teeth I'm looking for.

All it took for me was to try them once. Talk about some soft metal, they didn't last long at all.

Sunstar steel sprockets. Cheap and durable. They will outlast three or four aluminum sprockets.

Which sproket?

I have a 00 KDX 200 that at the begining of the season I changed both sprockets. The one's that the cycle shope ordered were Sprocket Specialists. Right now they show very little wear if any. My only complaint was that I didn't specify that I wanted a steel rear sprocket. When the parts came in, I realized that it was aluminum. So far it has been great. I will buy them again.

What!

All i run for Sprokets is JT's with RK x-ring chain. I've never had any problems, and they wear very well.

I have JT sprockets with an RK O-ring chain on my RM80 and after a full summer of riding (last year), there isn't any wear on the sprockets or the chain. I would buy them again.
