I got lucky. :D

If the sprocket would have had one more tooth, or one less tooth, the pattern wouldn't be symmetrical.
Symmetry is all! When at all possible through an unreasonable degree of effort.

How much is the sprocket going to cost you in the end?
I never keep track of stuff like that. Takes the fun out.

It's a one-off sprocket from Talon in GB. The machine work wasn't cheap because the sprocket is hardened steel. Still needs polishing and DLC coating.

So, yeah- not a cheap sprocket. But, I get to do it my way.

Yeah, I thought I remembered reading back when that it was a one-off with a custom offset etc.

I imagine you won't go through sprockets very fast.

Getting closer to welding the silencer brackets.

Need to cut the lateral supports and machine recesses to match the OEM subframe brackets.

Need to cut a 43 degree angle on the cross brace to fit it properly.

Also designed an aluminum strap which will bolt on, to align the silencers and the bolt holes during welding.
