God no, stay away from jt sprockets they will half the life of your chain. Renthal sprockets front and rear for me, 40000 miles on my current chain and only half worn.

Add I said, they tend to wear quickly and shorten the life of your chain.

Yes, they're made to a price. Talon are better but renthal are the best. This is only my opinion of course.
