    Sprokets (not interest in JT)

    I want to pre-emptively grab a front and rear sprocket for the 2014 NC700 DCT. I have previously tried the JT sprockets and the rear didnt even last 3000 miles before the teeth were worn and deformed. To the point the chain came off, luckily at a coasting speed of about 15 mph. I am looking at a couple others right now, and would love some input on some heavier duty sprockets besides the JT. I was tring to find a better list here, but too many vague references, and most just point to JT.

    Superlite Steel Rear Sprocket - SUPERLITE (#10509R) RS7 Series 520 Pitch Steel Rear Sprocket
    SUNSTAR (#3490) 520 Pitch Steel Rear Sprocket

    If there are heavier duty, I'd love to hear more. Again, though, I will not be getting JT.

    was the rear you used before steel or aluminum? even aluminum that's incredibly fast on a bike that makes as little power as an NC.

    Any reason not to go with the Honda OEM rear sprocket? I have almost 40,000 miles on my original rear sprocket and I don’t visually detect any wear. I expect to leave it on at least until I’m past 50,000 miles.

    I looked at an OEM rear sprocket and didn’t see a brand name on it. I think a lot of OEM sprockets are Sunstar. Honda uses Sunstar brake disks on the NC.

    The NC I have offered for sale has a Superlite on it. It hasn’t been there long enough to know how long it will last, but I know it’s over 3000 miles now.

    After the death of the JT, I went back to the my original OEM because I still had it in the garage - it's still on the bike now with 27k miles. I just wanted to have something on hand, so it isn't a last minute or holds me up from a trip. I havent looked up the PN for the OEM sprocket yet - service manual is at home.

    I just dont know if I can trust JT, because it threw the chain on the way home from RDV after being on the road for 7 hours. I was way lucky it came off at 15mph and not 70 or 80.

    Go back to OEM...I still have OEM sprockets on mine (50,000+ miles) and last week when I replaced the rear tire, I couldn't detect visually any changes from the old from the new sprockets I have in waiting-on my 3rd chain now..

    BikeBandit has the OEM Rear sprocket for $52 and the OEM front sprocket for $46

    OEM rear 39T is $44.90 at pro caliber. Spend $99 to get free shipping.

    The Honda Svc Manuals have never had the P/Ns. They are mainly for specs and procedures.

    +1 on using the standard Honda sprockets. Many times, aftermarket stuff is inferior the the original Honda parts.

    Although it lists the bike as an NC700 w/DCT, the Sprocket Center Sunstar link from your post shows a choice of 41 or 43 teeth, neither of which is the correct stock 39T size for that model.

    If you look at the kit 520 Chain Kit - JT Steel Sprockets with Choice of Chain - NC700 (DCT models) - NC 700 (all models) w/ DCT Transmission 2012-2017 - Honda - STREET rather than the sprocket alone, they list a 39T and state that it's OEM. However, I question the availability - looking on other web sites, Sunstar only appears to sell a 41 and a 43 for the NC700.

    I also HATED the JT chain I had on the NCX. I didn't hate the JT sprocket that much, but I can sympathize with _not_ using JT.
    I've been happy with Honda sprockets.
    I have a set of Superlites (which I think is still an AFAM name, isn't it?) on the way now, along with a new chain. I'll be happy to report on it once it's here and on, but that doesn't help you with ordering now.
