I bought my 43-tooth rear from sprocketcenter.com. They even cut the chain that I bought at the same time to 112 pins instead of 114. This provides even better wear characteristics and fit perfectly on the bike.

I went with an aluminum rear since it was my steel front that was a problem with wear. We will see if that was a poor choice, but after a couple of thousand miles everything seems to be working well.

Supersprox sprocket is used by a few guys here.

Why doesn't anyone sell a rubber dampened front sprocket?
Is OEM the only such replacement?

Best deal I found was at kurvygirl.com. I know, doesn't sound like a motorcycle place. Chheck it out, $39.99 for a Superlite steel. Shipping was reasonable.

This has been my experience too: the front sprocket is the first to wear out. My first Renthal aluminum sprocket looked good as new when the chain and front sprocket were pooched. No need to fear the aluminum, IMHO.

I got the Supersprox, a bit pricey but very slick. Steel teeth on an anodized aluminum body. Very nice looking.
