No there isn't unfortunately but it would cost way too much anyways.

The only forged aluminum aftermarket part for motorcycles are wheels and they would range from $3000-$5000 each.

hmmmm.. I don't think so

It shouldn't be too expensive to forge aluminum for sprockets

Motorcycle parts are just marked up a little bit more and demand a greater premium because the market is smaller

You can get a set of forged aluminum wheels for cars for 3-5k

But for a motorcycle its the same price for just two smaller wheels.

Even if the price is doubled on the sprocket I think people would still buy it.

forged wheels cost a lot, a good one time investment but how many of you would actually consider getting a set.

Spend the money on suspension and brakes, much much better value than forged rims when your on the street.

The only problem is that they don't exist.

SuperSprox sells part aluminum and part steel. Aluminum is the center carrier and where the chain sits on the sprocket teeth is steel...That looks way better than the stock sprocket...
