    I've not heard of Volar, but the ad seems to include legit stuff ?
    I've pretty much tried all the cheap chain/sprocket sets ebay has available and found myself constantly adjusting the chain during a season and replacing each spring. the cheap colored chains would have cost me a set of cases if I didn't run a case saver from Ken Oconnor Racing. the first one made it a week, the second one made it 1/2 mile. both were on decent shape but used sprockets.
    then I decided to spend the extra 20 sum bucks and get a $70-ish setup.... JT sprockets and Primary Drive non o-ring chain from ebay. the last I rode regularly I adjusted it a little only twice that season.
    similar to these .....

    spend the few extra $ and save constant adjustments, premature wear and possibly broken cases, and always replace them as a set ... chain and sprockets together !
    JT, Primary Drive, RK, DID, Renthal to name a few, all make reputable stuff.
    Volar ?
