Are Sunstar and JT still the go-to sprockets? They were when I was in the business, but I'm no longer up to date on these things.

Thanks for the help

it all depends on what you really are trying to do
save money with a cheap sprocket (either by trying a different tooth size or just replacement)
do you want a long lasting one?

it really does depend and my answer varies greatly

If this is going on your Bandit, then yes, I would say you couldn't go wrong with either Sunstar or JT. Japanese OEM's typically use Sunstar and are a tad more expensive. JT also makes very good quality sprockets at a price that can't be beat. Of course there are other options like Supersprox that use an aluminum carrier and carbon steel teeth (for the rear sprocket), but the price is significantly higher for the weight savings on a sport touring bike.
