I need to buy a new rear sprocket for my YZ426, and I've seen a couple of on-line places offer "JT" Sprockets. They are steel sprockets and run anywhere from $19-$25 dollars. Are they good, junk or different ?? I have never heard of this brand before. I'm looking for durability not light weight or anything special. The price is attractive compared to a Renthal at $49, and Sunstar which is a special order for the number of teeth (51) I'm looking for.

Honestly, steel is stronger than aluminum. That is why you don't see anyone offering an aluminum countershaft sprocket. A steel sprocket should outlast an aluminum one. However, more importantly is the choice of chain. If you use a cheap chain it will stretch and wear out a cheap sprocket just as fast as an expensive one. The sprockets won't have a choice. JTs should be a decent choice. Go with the JT steel sprockets and a nice o-ring chain and you won't be disapointed!
