Profile had issues with the KP sprocket being too thin and shattering and I don't think the Imperial is much different.. Profile also uses really fucking thin teeth and half link chains wear the hell out of sprocket teeth.

Pretty awesome sprocket though, I want to straighten a friends old KP for my flatland bike since it won't take much abuse.

it was largely cos the corners in the cutouts werent rounded enough i think-focusing stress into one small area which meant they eventually shattered. they were also really thin. the imperial design is better for resisting this i reckon cos its all circular(ish) cutouts

I used to love my cut piffs and couldn't ride anything else. I got used to 8.7 bars and I threw on piffs for fun a couple months ago. It was damn near impossible to ride.

Small/medium bars are very definitely worth riding for a fair while. They really do have their advantages, but you have to ride them for a while and ride a lot of different things/tricks to really see some of them.

I run 7.3" bars myself (which are slightly less tall than that because I cut them), albeit with a flipped frontload and gyro

My chain has had a tight spot recently, I looked at the sprocket/chain but they seemed OK. Today I noticed however that it was because of an outer Bluebird plate being bent. Because the chain was already stretched I decided to make a whole new chain out of spare links, as I've done before. This time however I had gold & black spare links from Bluebirds instead of just silver 510Hx links.

So now my chain is half black, half silver...

Got mine red & stripped it lol, would explain why the look the same! My bolts were rusted to buggery but i bought an old Redneck LT off a guy on here & he kindly sent a spare set of bolts with it so they were used. I would love to get some Blue6 Ti bolts for mine too, just top it off. Oh well, maybe, hopefully someday they will be back.
