Suzuki DR-Z 70 L8 18 Sprocket Front Less 1 Tooth - JT (Check Chain Length)
Front Drive Sprocket
JT are the leading manufacturer of aftermarket motorcycle sprockets, with the largest and most advanced factory in the world.
Motorcycle Sprockets made the right way...
There's only one way to make a sprocket that meets the highest quality standards and thats hobbing, machining and drilling. This gives the closest tolerances and most accurate tooth profiles.
...with the right materials...
By sourcing the best quality raw materials for their motorcycle sprockets, JT can ensure the best quality end product.
All of JT's front sprockets are made with SCM420 high carbon steel which is fully heat treated. Other brands of sprocket may be surface hardened only, which means that once the protective surface is worn it exposes a softer metal underneath. JT front sprockets are hardened all the way through.
...to meet or exceed the highest quality standards
Each JT sprocket goes through 10 individual quality control checks before leaving the factory to ensure that it meets or exceeds the highest quality standards for the motorcycle industry. And a good quality sprocket means less wear on the drive chain.

Delivery and Returns
We want you to be happy with your purchase. If you're not, just return the products to our warehouse. Unless faulty, we'd like this to be within 30 days of purchase. Exceptions apply to certain products.
In theory, increasing the number of teeth on the front sprocket and/or decreasing the number of teeth on the rear sprocket will result in you achieving a higher top speed, lower acceleration and better fuel economy. And vice versa: decreasing the number of teeth on the front sprocket and/or increasing the number of teeth on the rear sprocket will result in lower top speed, higher acceleration and worse fuel economy.
However, whilst generally true, in practice, this is always the case - mostly due to the power output of the machine at certain revs being higher or lower than at others. So, use the following table as a guide only. To achieve your desired results will often involve some trial and error.
It should also be noted that some models cannot accommodate larger front sprockets. Check before ordering. Often, the fitting of larger sprockets may require a longer chain. Check this too before ordering.
Lowering the ratio increases top-end speed. Increasing the ratio increases acceleration and bottom-end power.
