New chain and sprockets.

Post by Leow » Thu May 30, 2019 10:00 am

Does anyone know the best place, the best brand, to purchase a new chain and sprockets for a Saturno 500, 1988 model? What are the best size front sprocket and best size rear sprocket? Does changing from stock standard make any real difference? Regards Leow

i think any major brand will be ok.
For the rear wheel sprocket you may chose something from Steel, Aluminium, Nylon or one of those pretty but expensive Stealth blades ;)
If it's worth to change gearing depends on what you prefer.
If you run ofte nint othe rev limiter it might be worth to use less teeth.
If you like better aceleration maybe you wish 1 or 2 teeth more.
Doing some calculations with programms like GearData (written years ago by a forum member, but only in german)
may help.
Oh yes and there are 2 driving pinions available, 14 and 15 teeth if i remember right

ciao Joachim
