The Vortex V3 2.0 Performance Chain and Sprocket Kits are designed to meet the needs or any motorcycle rider whether you are looking for that increase in performance or are in need of a "stock replacement". Some riders are willing to trade the proven performance benefits found with a 520 kit with aluminium rear sprocket and quicker acceleration for the long life of an OEM replacement style kit where others prefer to be right in the middle with the 520 kit with the laser cut steel rear sprocket that serves up the best balance of the two. No matter which rider you are Vortex makes it easy with a ready to install performance chain kit we are proud to offer.
