Harbor Freight and Cycle gear have them for reasonable cost.

Grind the heads off your pins then tap them out with a punch if you don't have a splitter.

This riveter is easy to use.

I've been purchasing form Bikebandit for years, no problems so far.

That sprocket is not made by DID.  It's made by JT Sprockets. Don't know if that's a good brand

The sprocket research I did rated the JT sprockets very highly for quality, strength and wear resistance. They are the ones I specifically sourced for my renewal.  :028:

For fitting I mention a few YouTube clips (among many available) here you may find helpful.

Very helpful stuff guys! Much appreciate it. Should I go with the rubber cushioned front sprocket or the regular?

The rubber cushion is for sound deadening. I replaced my OEM sprocket with one without the rubber and frankly can't tell the difference. When the specket is going around I have a helmet on and ear plugs in and the engine noise is coming from between me and the sprocket location.

Copy. Now that I have the chance should I gear up or down ? I have the option to gear down to 47 rear sprocket or 50, or 52. And go as small as 15 for the center sprocket.  Factory calls for 15/50

14/50 is a popular combo and means that you dont have to adjust the chain length if you want to return to 15/50 at some stage.
Once you start changing the rear sprocket with multiple tooth changes you always need to adjust the physical chain length. Overall its up to you and what you want to do with the bike.

I ordered the DID 525 VX chain with 124 links , hopefully it's an exact fit for 16/50. The triumph website recommend 124 links.
