So almost 2 weeks ago (January 24) I placed an order to Sprocket Center for a Superlite sprocket and chain kit. A couple days later I get a call from them informing me that my size rear sprocket was out of stock (44 tooth) and after a few minutes of thinking about it I decided to go a size bigger and get the 45t that was in stock. No big deal. 3 days later the box is at my door and I couldn't be happier so I put the bike on the stands and went to work. Got the chain and rear sprocket on with ease but when I went to install the front sprocket I quickly realized that this is not the right sprocket for my bike. So I just put the old one back on being that they were the same tooth size anyways. At this point I am questioning this company. The next day I call them up and explain the situation and the gentleman on the phone was very reasonable and said he will send the right one out immediately with a paid return envelope for the old one. Now I am a little frustrated but frustration will not solve my problem. 3 days later I get the package and quickly open it. What do i find? A SunStar sprocket. Not the Superlite that I ordered. In a frantic rage I throw it back in the box and storm off. The next day during business hours I call them right up. Tell the guy my last name for the order information and he remembered just who I was. I explain the situation and he tells me "We are out of stock on the superlite for your bike so we sent a different brand as a replacement." I went on to tell him that we both could have saved 3 days of our time by just calling me to tell me whats going on. I mean if I order a gsxr1000 are you going to send me a gsxr600 because you are out of stock on the 1000's? No. I kept my tone calm because I know its not his fault he is just who answers the phone. After a little negotiating he is going to credit me $10 for my inconvenience and I am going to return the old sprocket in the return envelope I was given and I will keep the SunStar because the superlites will not be back in stock for 8 weeks. Never again will I use this company.

We have superlight Driven and Vortex in stock. Hit us up if you want a chain kit. 165 shipped with most ek mvxz chains. Just let me know, but no reason to settle.

Eddie,

When we last spoke to resolve this issue you seemed satisfied with the end result.
I'm not just a guy on the phone. I am the owner, so I take things like this seriously. I want you to be happy with your purchase from us.

On rare occasions we may substitute a similar quality part of equal or more value. We always try to contact the customer before doing this. I again apologize this didn't happen in your case.

Just to clarify for folks, the part was a SUPERLITE brand front sprocket.
This is not the same as a "superlight" Driven brand or Vortex brand sprocket mentioned on this thread by someone else.
