Yamaha XTZ660 Tenere Chain & Sprocket Kit

Hello All,
there are a lot of people here on the HUBB who know much much more than me about this kind of stuff so just a quick one: is this any good?
Yamaha XTZ660 Tenere Chain & Sprocket Kit on eBay Motorcycle Parts, Motorcycle Parts Accessories, Cars, Parts Vehicles (item 320137476924, end time 12-Aug-07 14:08:41 BST)
Price looks OK to me and the specs too but I am always concerned about: there is something I am missing - like: the chain is good but the sprokets are s**t... you know the sort of things...
any advice or comment is appreciated.
Many thanks for your time.

Question

Hi Alex
DID chains are good that go's with out saying, i've not heard of Chiaravalli make of sprocket, sounds Italian to me, so you would have to go with your gut feeling about them, but may be its worth taking the part numbers down to your local bike shop and get them to do a bit of a check for you. Hope this is of some help Skip
