When I had my dealer do the chain a while back he used the rivet
link.. generic tools.. course they ONLY do rivet links and do quite a
few so .. As for sprockets I replaced the front with an OEM unit
primarily based on my dealers recommendation that there is a reason
for the rubber damping ring on the OEM unit. For the rear I did a
STEEL Afam rear I would recommend against an aluminum rear since they
wear much quicker than steel and the weight savings in my opinion is
pointless on a bike like the ST.
