Anyone know a good place to buy a chain and front sprocket for 2009 Vulcan 500 LTD? There are lots on ebay but I don't want super cheap quality.

Amazon is my 'Go-To' source lately for aftermarket parts.

Front Sprocket: JTF512.17 17-tooth $17
Rear Sprocket: JTR1490.42 42-tooth $15
Chain: JTC520X1RGB110RL $60

All above are J-T Sprockets products.

Hope this helps.

Thanx and appreciate it. Was just wondering if those brands were decent enough quality as well.
Regarding the longevity of J-T Sprockets products:
I have been using J-T Sprockets sprockets exclusively for over 100,000 miles and here is what I have found:
Front Sprocket: 14,000-16,000 miles
Rear Sprocket: Life of the chain. Up to 43,000 miles.
X1R Chain: Unknown as this is the first one used from J-T Sprockets. Previous Tsubaki chains lasted 22,000-43,000 miles and were twice the price.

I tend to travel farther, harder, and with more gear than most Vulcan 500 riders so I go through chains, sprockets, and tires a bit faster. YMMV
