Where to buy a 520 conversion kit?

I'm going to buy a 520 conversion kit, likely this weekend with all of the specials going on.
I need an RK520GXW black chain, aluminum black rear sprocket (driven?), and a superlight front sprocket (renthal, driven).

Unfortunately Rider's Discount is out because they don't sell that chain. I can piece everything together for 190$ shipped. I'm hoping that someone selling the whole kit can offer a bit of a discount.

Price is higher than what I listed above piecing out individual components. So that's not going to work.

Yep, I sent Corey a PM. They have a good black friday/cyber monday special, if the price is the same with an aluminum sprocket, I think I'll be buying from MM for the first time. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Superlite/RK 520GXW X'Ring Chain and Steel Sprocket Kit - YAMAHA
D1202GXW

Retail Price $208.00
Our Price: $179.95

I just ordered a new RK 520GXW replacement for $119 and another AFAM 520 Conversion Drilled Steel Front Sprocket for $33.95. I got over 6k track miles on my last one and I'm only replacing it because my rear sprocket is worn. The chain still looks fine though.

Motomummy is 22.95$ cheaper right now with free shipping if I go with a steel rear sprocket like in that kit. I want an aluminum one.

If you don't have a 100% dedicated track bike and want longevity then go with the Driven Racing superlight steel chain kit. Yes, our chain kit prices right now are as low as they will ever be. We are waiting as price hikes for 2013 should be coming out within the next 30 days. For the last 5 years they had a price hike every year so I would suspect they will have one this year as well, but hopefully not.

Thanks for good words guys We surely go through a ton of chain kits every month.

I just saw that all of the kits are on sale, not just the steel sprocketed ones on the black friday page. Derp. Great price. MotoMummy it is!
