We use the ti-moly on our mx and xc bikes and they are the only sprockets I have never had to replace. All the steel sprockets wear out over time.

In drag racing they are kind of heavy compared to aluminum tough. Also note, that if you keep your chain tight, you won't round off aluminums too quickly if you are straight lining.

For the money sprocket specialists has some good prices. Make sure to get your gears hard anodized as it reduces wear.

Krause also has good rears, but they are quiet a bit more money.

i would always get the hard anodized sprockets from sprocket specialist for my street bikes and it would last a few thousand miles more. it was only 10-15 bucks more and worth the money. i believe the option was called titan tough.

i run ti-moly frt sprockets and alm rear, either sidwinder or sprocket specities, depending on the hp of your bike they should do fine, i also run my chain alittle on tight side and as said it does help from rounding rears off, but i also keep mine pretty clean and lubed

Are you applying for the position?? LOL...

My sprocket Specialist aluminum rear still looks new that I got last year and it has a TON of passes on it.
Getting another one next week...one tooth bigger.

I hate paying that price, however, after seeing how it wears...it's worth it. As said, proper chain tension is really the key to life on them.

although dave suggests aluminum I would have to dissagree...I got an aluminum sprocket specialties that didnt make it all the way through a riding season.I imo would go with something stronger as steel if not ti which I did when I replaced it...They suggest if you are putting new sprockets to run a new chain as well.

Yep...keep in mind my bike is drag race only. Between the track and the dunes, easily 200 passes or more...probably closer to 250.
To be 100% honest, I would run steel if I had the opportunity, but...because I have a Honda Rear Sprocket hub, they don't go as high as I need them to. After seeing how mine wore...though, I'm no longer hesitant about aluminium. Your mileage may vary...of course.

Duneland/David Allan Racing by Silver Lake carries them. Same price to order from them then going directly to sprocket specialists...and the two times I called SS, the woman was an absolute BIYATCH...

My next axle will be Yamaha 6 bolt, and I will more than likely go back to the cheaper and more readily available steel.

Just put a yamaha sprocket hub on it. If you change your front sprocket you won't have to run such a large gear nerd.

That or make some more hp so that you can run smaller rears

Honestly, this axle is old. Great axle, but I'm not going to fork over a bunch of money for a Yamaha hub when I plan on buying a JJ&A style sometime this year..


Who the heck would like to see a huge rear? I fancy the small ones, nothing wrong with that.
