There is no rea­son why any mo­tor­cy­cle has to put up with a worn sprocket and all the associated prob­lems they come with, at least not when Talon Engi­neer­ing’s range cov­ers all sorts of dirt bikes. The one pic­tured here is for a Bultaco Sherpa T and is a 39 tooth one – though other sizes are avail­able to al­low you to fine tune your gear­ing to suit your lo­cal con­di­tions.

It is a fas­ci­nat­ing thing to watch sprock­ets be­ing made, well fas­ci­nat­ing for some­one not in engi­neer­ing, as blank discs are fit­ted to ma­chines and teeth are formed in sec­onds. Some years ago, CDB vis­ited Talon’s place in Som­er­set and watched the whole process hap­pen­ing from start to fin­ish, very en­ter­tain­ing and when the Talon logo is lasered on the fin­ished item in less time than it takes to say ‘lasered on’ well… wow. What more can you say about a sprocket? The bolt holes line up… it is a thing of beauty… fit­ting a new one pro­claims you look af­ter your bike…

WHAT IS IT? It is a re­place­ment rear sprocket from Talon Engi­neer­ing. WHAT’S IT COST? De­pends on the make of your bike. WHERE DO YOU GET IT? Your lo­cal Talon stock­ist, visit www.talo­neng.co.uk to find out where.
