The Dirt Tricks KTM Rear Sprocket was designed and patented by Dirt Tricks president and engineer Greg Burns in 2002, using his knowledge of aerospace steels, heat treatments, as well as FEA stress analysis.
Being an expert desert racer, Greg became tired of changing aluminum sprockets every two months.
His goal was to create a sprocket that would last an entire season of hard riding, yet be comparable in weight to aluminum.
Thus, the Dirt Tricks sprocket was born.
It required two years of development and testing, but the end result has proven to be the toughest, most durable off-road sprocket available.
The 48 tooth rear is my preferred sprocket for the 701.
Gears the bike down enough for semi-technical offroad but still leaves the bike enough room at the top to clip along at Highway speeds. Unfortunately the stock chain is not long enough to accommodate a 48 tooth sprocket so you will require a new chain.
The 120 link Regina chain will suit your needs.
