a bang for your buck
been using vortex steel front and back sprockets for around 4 years now on several bikes, and for the price they usually last an awesome amount of time, quality wise they are pretty good, and I still have to break a tooth or have them bent somehow, they always last more than chains do so I would say they are quite durable

Good Replacement
I needed a new chain and sprockets for the KTM and this one had decent reviews and a decent price. The fitment was spot on and it is showing no wear after a few rides. So far so good!

Cool
Been digging the vortex stuff. Looks great and well made. Not rocket science when it comes to sprockets. So value and performance are key.

Geared up
Bought a new bike and the gearing was a little low. This worked like a charm.

Holding up well
I’ve run this for two seasons now in some pretty harsh mud races and it’s holding up very well. No complaints.

Vortex Sprockets
Excellent value and durability to match. The Vortex sprockets have equaled or surpassed the durability of any of the others we have tested.

Is this a wider sprocket to replace the inferior OEM skinnier sprocket?
SETH I on May 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a replacement for the OEM Sprocket, however, I don't think it's any wider than stock. It's a very tight fit, so there's really not room for more width. I can tell you that's it's a very good front sprocket, and I've been using Vortex sprockets for the past 5 years on my KTM & Husky 350's. They've done a good job and held up well. I keep buying them, so I've been pleased with them.
Can this sprocket fit a 2005 kx125?
