Sidewinder chain and sprocket ? - May 9, 2008, 09:05 AM

My Triumph forum is working on a group buy for a 520 Sidewinder Ti II sprocket and maybe the smart chain. The sprocket is guaranteed for life. Just wondering if anyone has ever used their products, and what opinions are out there.

It says you have to use their chain to have replaced under warranty. It being so super hard, would it wear chains out faster?

Website shows 90 bucks front and 170 bucks rear. Plus chain. We're looking at almost 400 for a final drive system, compared with about 200 for AFAM sprockets and a DID x-ring gold chain. You'll have to ride A LOT to get your money's worth, and I predict that you'll need to swap out their chain almost as soon as any other.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Since their chain is TI would you need to lube it?

TITANIUM CHAIN still needs to be lubed just like any other chain , if it were me i would just stick with vortex sprockets and a DID o ring chain , if your looking for longer lasting sprockets and arent worried about unsprung wieght at the rear wheel just buy steel sprockets .

Why would it require lube/wax if it A) can't rust and B) self lubricates?

Self lube is referring to the o-ring which most say still needs a little help to stay soft.
The real need for lube is between the chain and the sprocket, this is still metal on metal.
