Over the past year, we have been testing Delaney Drive Components. During that time, we have used the same rear sprocket and chain for over 8,000 miles, on the same bike.

Here's just a few shots of the bike traveling around the Northwest:

To start over fresh again, we picked up a new KTM Hardcore Kit, in 14/48 gearing. This includes a KTM OEM front sprocket, DDC Racing KTM rear sprocket, RK premium gold xw-ring chain, and a KTM specific sprocket hardware kit. Shown below:

DDC's custom made rear sprockets are extremely lightweight, amazingly strong and look great. They are laser cut from Chromoly steel, ground to precision, then chrome plated. This is why these sprockets can withstand so much use and abuse. Rocks, sand, mud, stumps, water, and everything else you throw at it won't stand a chance.

 As you can see, there it definitely some wear. However, with as many miles as this sprocket has, it is extremely surprising how much longer we could have ran this!

 Adding the new OEM front sprocket. It looks even newer than new next to a dirty engine case!

With a very easy swap job complete, our KTM is ready for the next 8,000 miles, or more! The sprocket and chain are both very stylish and look incredible.
