From the day I got this bike, I thought that Triumph did a great job on all areas of this bike but just quit at the driveline. A simple grey chain and a plain finish sunstar sprocket on the rear. It just looked unfinished to me.

I decided to replace the chain with a Regina gold Z Ring. The nuts were replaced with Driven Racing nuts, and the stock sprocket was replaced with a stock Cerakoted sprocket to make the color match the bike. It looks much more refined to me now.

The gold chain really works on the bike. I don't mind the driveline as it is now, but changing the chain color really pops the bronze accents already on the bike.

BTW... The whitewalls really look great too!!!

I totally agree with MX429 and am looking into getting a black sprocket. I'm not enamored of gold chains they tend to loose their color after a while. I'm going with a black chain.

Completely love this. Consider your ideas stolen!

Seriously, really nice idea, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Triumph do something like this later. I too think the driveline looks a little unfinished.

That mod really sets the bike off, what size chain did you use as I cannot find the specification on length etc. Any help would be appreciated.

525 size chain.

I purchased 110 links. Cut to size. Reference the owners manual but I believe stock length is 107.

No problem! Yes, it is an OEM sprocket. I just ordered the stock replacement and sent it to be coated. I bought a new one because I didn’t want to be without the bike while I waited.

Noticed that Triumph have done a bit of work on the BB buy blacking the sprocket out. Looks better.
Maybe simply going to the dealer and ordering a bobber black sprocket would be an easy option for anyone wanting to add some color.
