Sprockets- Specially Designed for Kart Racing

Chautauqua Machine Specialties manufactures our own branded sprockets specifically designed for the sport of kart racing. CMS started making these specialty sprockets to improve safety for kart racers. When kart racers started using more powerful engines, and therefore larger chains to increase speed, safety became an issue using the smaller sprockets. Several racers from the Unlimited All-Stars (UAS), a national motorsport organization, expressed an interest in larger sprockets, and CMS answered their call. Chautauqua Machine Specialties became the first manufacturer to make these specialized sprockets for kart racing, and remain one of the few manufacturers in the world which provide these products today. CMS sprockets #420, #428, and #520 are manufactured from 7075 aluminum and hard anodized for endurance. Please visit the Online Store to learn about all the different Sprockets CMS provides.
