WRP OEM upgrade Z-ring chains and rear sprockets

This ‘Made in Italy’ 520LZR series chain by WRP is described as “a high-quality OEM upgrade that is designed to work with off-road race motorcycles from 125 cc to 450 cc.

“Providing high performances under every extreme condition, the construction reduces friction as the Z-ring actually rotates between the chain plates instead of being compressed like a normal O-ring. The result is that the Z-ring disperses pressure and minimises power loss”.

It is made with four contact points for greater sealing, which also ensures improved wear resistance. Featuring chromoly steel construction with seamless rollers and bushings, alloy steel pins with special heat treatment provide increased thermal fatigue resistance and the gold outer finish prevents corrosion.

“The perfect combo comes with our WRP aluminium rear sprockets. Made in Europe from billet 7075-T6 aluminium alloy for high strength and low weight, these sprockets feature self-cleaning grooves to prevent mud build-up and an adonised finish for less wear and increased lifespan”.

Available for all the most popular off-road racing motorcycles with several tooth options.
