Chain Replacement 600 K7

Had my chain snap last week and looking to get a replacement. Any advice on which chain to go for would be appreciated. Also would it be worth getting the sprockets replaced at the same time?

Re: Chain Replacement 600 K7

Always replace chains and sprockets together. Personally, I consider them a single component.

I'm partial to EK chains and Driven sprockets, but RK and D.I.D. chaings are great too. Can't go wrong with any of those brands.

Thanks, struggling to find them available in the UK. Renthal seem to get decent reviews, which I can get with D.I.D chain? Would you go with 520 15/45 ?

I would post the links, but post count isn't high enough.

I run a 15/45 on my track bike. If you're just riding street, stick with stock gearing. If you want more punch, go +3 on the rear and leave the front stock. But, it will throw your speedo off and you'll need a SpeedoDRD or something similar to correct it. Which is more $$$.

I just received sprockets for PVM and Galespeed wheels. They have good pricing.

I believe my bike is also 15/45 on my sprockets when I bought the bike used. You will notice the difference in the RPMs when you change your gearing. I bought a speedohealer (easy to install and calibrate with help of youtube and forum) and fixed the issues.
