Sunstar 520RTG1 Racing Chain

The Sunstar 520RTG1 Works Triple Guard Sealed Racing Chain is a top level racing chain designed for high performance street/racing 600cc and 1000cc applications. It's direct competitor is likely the DID ERV3 Chain.

Sunstar's exclusive TG-ring (TripleGuard) is employed where the ring seals with three lips per side for the ultimate in heat prevention and keeping the chain lubricated even in extremely harsh conditions.

The 520RTG1 is extremely strong with a tensile strength rating of 9,270 lbs, yet also in a lightweight design - weighing just over 4 lbs per 100 links. The chains come in Gold and a rivet connecting link it is highly recommended.

The Sunstar RTG1 chain is also available in a 530 variation (530RTG1) and provides about 9,900lbs of tensile strength.

Sunstar has a long heritage of road racing and sprocket development but has had some absence in top level sportbike racing in the recent decades which could lend a slow market uptake to their racing chain. I've been assured the quality is among the best and with Sunstar's OE collaboration it's not hard to convince me.

We recommend the RK chain tool for installation.

Hanging Out with Jonah Street

I had the privilege of hanging out with rider Jonah Street in Indianapolis earlier this year. It was a big moment for me considering that it wasn't a meet and greet or an autograph signing. I had heard (and seen) so much about this rider since moving into the ADV scene and I have to say- what a nice guy! He started off by telling me we were going to have to wrestle right there and then since I didn't have any of my Klim gear on, but when I offered to buy him a beer (from the complimentary bar) he seemed willing to pass on the wrestling. Everyone was relaxing while we watched the current round of Supercross. It was the race from this season (2012) with the Chad Reed injury so, perfect timing to be in close quarters with so many people that love motorcycles!

I got to talk to Jonah about everything from movies and music to riding growing up and his early days looking for sponsors. He had it rough for a lot of years and it doesn't seem like things got any easier as the road went on. I didn't expect to find so much common ground with a seasoned rally rider. This was just part of the charm that is Jonah Street. He was vocal about loving what he does and how lucky he is to do it. I happen to share this sentiment as well. All this bonding and I still wanted more so, I captured his attention at the exact wrong moment- right when Reed hit the ground live on TV!!! Uh-oh... back to wrestling we go.

So, thumbs up to Jonah for endlessly humoring a fan and best of luck to him as spokesperson for Top 1 Oil.
