VORTEX // SPROCKETS
Proper gearing is critical when horsepower is in short supply, as it is on small-displacement bikes. Most little motorcycles come geared low for optimal acceleration, and gearing taller will make for more relaxed freeway riding by lowering your cruising rpm. This is especially appealing for Honda CBR300R riders. Vortex sells steel countershaft sprockets for $29 and aluminum rear sprockets for $71 in your choice of black, silver, red, or blue. Long-lasting steel rear sprockets are also available for some bikes in black for just $55.
