I went ahead and inspected the sprocket and chain they look pretty worn out my chain has rust on it sprocket teeth look straight but they are worn out from the edges. I am able to pull on the train and see slight daylight. The chain moves left to right side to side in other words. What is a good brand of sprocket and chain I can buy while on a budget. I looked at eBay and there is a chain and sprocket kit for sale made by Valor. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

The Triumph chain kit will be safest bet. Anything going cheap could be fake. Not worth taking a chance on something so important.

DID x ring are the best chains but there is a lot of fakes on the market, if you're not sure, not worth a chance.
Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

Copy. Any recommendations for the US market? Looking to have it up and running before the weekend for a ride. With the coronavirus lockdown the roads and empty perfect time for long rides  :031:

That eBay item looks right. They include the correct front sprocket with the cush ring.

That sprocket is not made by DID.  It's made by JT Sprockets. Don't know if that's a good brand
And what about like gear ratios etc ?

The fitment section of the ad lists your bike.

As a newbie, you will probably have little to zero success properly installing the chain's riveted master-link (special tool required).
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
