    Africa Twin
    I'm looking for the best protection I can find for my @ as I'm in the states and don't have easy accsess to replacement parts.

    It's time to replace the chain and sprockets on my 2002 RD07a. I don't want to skimp on the quality of the bits, so I was thinking of going for a DID chain and JT sprockets. To be fair I originally wanted to fit Honda parts, but the cost of front (£23) and rear (£70) sprockets scared the bejesus...
