    I used the Sun gears alot. They worked fine for me. I would keep bumping the front sprocket up until you get much higher top end speed without sacraficing(?) your take off. I was able to go 3 sizes up in the front on my Warrior and still had great take off speed. The top end went from 65 up to 78!!!

    Only issue with Renthal is they're Aluminum. That's fine for the front, but the rear can take a beating. I would stick with a steel rear.

    I had full skid protectors. Sometimes you nail something, snap the bolt that holds the under-chain guard and bend the sprocket.

    I've had no problems with steel ones to date.

    D.I.D's X-Ring is about 50% lower friction and delivers 50% to 100% longer wear resistance over the O-Rings. Also, D.I.D X-Rings have 1.8 greater durability than conventional O-Rings.

    but what is an x ring?

    i am of the understanding that an o ring is simply that, a small o-ring which holds in grease (i think?)

    but wtf is an x-ring?

    also seems to me that it would keep dirt out of the bushings better. Maybe that's just me though.

    X Ring = 2 Sealing Points to keep dirt out.
    O Ring = 1 Sealing Point

    I'm rockin DID X Ring Chain on my Blaster with RK Sprockets.

    Ebay it, and you can get a DID X Ring Chain & Sprocket Set for like $99.
