My rear sprocket is shot and I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a steel version avail. The stock alum one didn't last very long.

Thanks

i got one word for you, "sidewinder."

i never believed it until i owned one, but it will be the last sprocket and/or chain you will ever buy.

great customer service too! i broke two teeth off a sprocket on a rock and they replaced it no questions asked. then like a idiot i cut a chain too short and again they replaced it with no questions asked.

Just ordered their front and rear ti-2 sprockets and their 16,000lb test chain. It was a LOT of money but I should be worth it. I usually go through 3 fronts and a couple rears every year and these are lifetime guaranteed to it should pay for itself.

these chains and sprokets sound pretty good almost to good to be true since thier doing themselves out of business, my question is if the chain is to snap is it going to do more damage than any other standard chain?

whats the part numbers for the best sproket and chain (i think its the titanium 2) in the same tooth specification as stock on the ktm to suit the ktm

Just call alex there and he will set you up. I don't know part numbers but I went 1 tooth down in the rear to make 2nd and 3rd a little more flexible. They really know there stuff and they are the suppliers to the factory ktm race teams

According to KBR, the rear sprockets designed for the 400ex/trx450 will bolt right up and work perfectly.

I ran sidewinder's ti-moly setup on my predator for about 2 years. When I sold the bike there was not any noticably wear to the sprockets at all. Before I installes them I weighed the new sidewinder chain and my stock chain. I found that the sidewinder chain was just a little over 1/2 the weight of the stock one. Needless to say this will be one of my first changes on my 525.
