I ran a hard Anodized rear sprocket from Sprocket Specialists on my 93 ZX11 Ninja... $160 & wore da beotch out in one summer.

Going with a Ti 2 Sidewinder this time around. Just picked up a nice set of Techno Magnesium wheels for my bad boy, so any weight savings going with aluminum is nill for me @ this point....

So you feel the need to bump a four year old thread to tell us you wore out your alum sprocket in one summer?
Way to go.
But let's not do that stupid shit again.
K?

Have you read the reviews on the sidewinder sprockets? Iirc the "lifetime" warranty wasn't exactly life time.

CR480 Honda MXer. When it came time to replace the stock aluminum rear sprocket I opp'd for steel. The steel wore way better. It may have been heaver, but I couldn't tell the difference. However, my Wallet could!

I run Steel and the OEM size chain on the street. They last longer. I change both sprockets and chain together.

Gotta admit Travis has you on this one. How many times have folks been told to use search? His comments are spot on for the thread. Say your sorry and let the thread move forward.

Wow...Koor, didn't realize you were one of the chosen outcast, seems we are getting more and more each year. Think we have added at least 6 more in the last 12 months.

Jim, common, you were quick to bitch on this guy for bumping the thread and you were out of line...period. Now be a stand up guy and apologize as quickly as you jumped his ass.

He doesnt need to say he's sorry. He just needs to take the shit he is given.

The new guy needs to tip toe from now on. He is fucked no matter what he says.

I Ride: on ice at 15F below zero. GO ICEHOLES!!!
Dirt bike = steel (I run a loose chain, and aluminum does not like that, ever see multiple teeth missing at the end of a ride? I have, its ugly)

Street bike = steel ( I am a maintenance freak, but on the street? what difference does it make? go with the longer/stronger steel)

Race bike = Aluminum (again, I tend to run my chains loose, but multiple race/track day inspections help also unsprung rotating mass is NOT your friend for acceleration)

Aluminum will wear so yu gotta stay on top of it.

Fred, you are so correct...but I disagree on only one point... saying your sorry should not be a big deal when you fuck up as it forces you to admit that you were wrong. It also takes a bigger person to admit it.

I still would like to see a picture of the guys new rims...damn those things are expensive but they sure do look nice!

My issue was that his comment contributed nothing to this conversation. The original thread had its closure four years ago.

And as to why I took a couple days to get back here to offer up my apology for hurting someone's feelers...I been a little busy with life.

There is NO RULE, nor should there be, that makes it a crime to comment on topic in an older thread (whether intentional or by accident) nor should this be a reason for a moderator to jump someone (especially a new member) and tell them they are doing stupid shit.

Not what I would consider being a positive influence to either the site or member. If you admit your going to be a dick why be a moderator?

Rule one of the site...
Participate and have fun.
Communicate with other motorcycle riders, share your thoughts and experiences with other motorcycle riders, meet up with other motorcycle riders for motorcycle rides and gatherings.

I would not take a long trip with an aluminum sprocket.
