Where to buy 919 chain and sprockets??

well looks like my 919 chain is shot.. After only 11,100 miles.. I'm no expert but I cant see any visable damage to the sprockets.. But I let it go loose for long time and there was a knock and I thought it was the motor, well I tigthend up the chain and it fixed it.. for about 600 miles now it is bad again and I tightedn the chain up again , now just rolling it about half way around it seems to get in bind and pop.. I have it properly adjusted.. Looks like it would have lasted longer.. the ones on my honda magna have 30,000 on original chain/sprockets..

anyways.. where is the best place to buy a chain and sprockets for the 919 for the best price??? any color combinations can be added to the chain,etc??

I just ordered this in stock configuration..

http://www.sprocketcenter.com/p/3703...t---honda.html

was a little worried about this tri-metal.. but they said the teeth were steel and it would wear the same as an all steel sprocket?? this true??

also I've touched a little on the 112 vs 114th length?? what little I read is some say its better to go with 112 to give u more adjustmetn on the chain? is this true?/ or is there plenty of adjustment on 114 length? my stock chain is wore out at 11,110 miles, and it showed still in the green with the marking ligned up slightly past the next to the last mark..

Tri-Metal is top notch stuff, no need to worry one bit. (the teeth are heat treated steel, the carrier is aluminum) XRMikey and myself both use these sprockets and we're the pickiest SOB's you're ever gonna meet!

Some 919's can run 112 links and some can't(I had to modify my chain adjusters to run 112 links). Go with the 114 link chain just to play it safe. It could always be shortend later.

sprocketcenter doesnt have the sprocket in stock, and they say it will be wed maybe before they get it, possibly later..

Is there another online retailer that will sell this same setup for a comparable price that might have it in stock..

Sidewinder has good stuff, It's just over priced.

Tri-Metal from Sprocketcenter = $85.00

Tri-Metal from Sidewinder = $129.00!

Sprocketcenter has better shipping rates as well.

Just saying....

Won't these places meet or beat the others prices? Start a PRICE WAR!!
Don't these internet retailer all get their stuff from basically the same wholesalers?
Keep us informed of what sprockets and chains y'all go with as we'll all need to replace sooner or later and I for one, always want to replace with the best parts that are available and of course, for the the lowest prices on those parts!

Chains are normally sold in 10 link increments so 112 and 114 should be the same price. I always order a little longer and take off what I don't need. It tends to make life a little easier when one needs that one extra link to connect the chain together.
I also have two chain tools so I never worry if the chain is to long.
