Has anybody out there dealt with Sidewinder sprockets?

http://www.sidewindersprockets.com

I am thinking about putchacing one of there Tri-metal sprockets and a Ti-moly (titanium and cromolly cross) chain. They look and sound trick but I have no reference.

Re: Ti-molly chain from slidewinder (foxomatica)

I have them on my RC.

They look nice.... I bought them because the RC eats Alloy sprockets. 5k miles and they are done. This new Tri-Metal 520 sprocket is supposed to last as long as the stock sprocket in 530 pitch. The chain is quite nice as well. I believe DID's New x ring chain has this one beat on the frictional losses..... but this has double the tensil strengt of the DID at 14,000lbs in 520. I ride mostly on the street, so this is the way I went.. If I go do trackdays and take them serious.... I'll switch to DID Chain and alloy sprockets for that day.

They look sweet.... dont have the RC back together yet.... so can't comment on anything else other than the Look.

Thanks thumper. I ride the Monster only on the street so is seems like a good way to go. Do you think the frictional loss would make that much difference on the track?

I really have no clue...... I doubt for a person like you or I who are not professionals (I'm assuming you arent a professional) that we couldn't tell a difference really and if we can... then by all means we should be looking at DID's Nex X2 Chain and Alloy sprockets for the least weight and not be concerned with durability


I like the sprockets..... next time I will prolly go with the DID Chain..... Cuz its Gold
