I have the Ironman and the Sidewinder, both will be the last sprockets you will have to buy. The Ironman is a 47 and I got the stock 48 in the Sidewinder. I have had the Sidewinder for over a year with no visible ware.
I am currently running the DID X-Ring chain and love it :thumbsup:
I also have the full TM setup, also better than stock.
You really can't go wrong with the setup you mentioned.

Do you ride motocross? Did you notice the additional weight? I went by their tent at Hangtown and picked one up. Very noticeably heavier in my hand, not sure how that translates to performance. Kind of like a flywheel weight, I guess. Is it noticeable?

i'm gettin ready to change my sprocket and chain soon... so if your supposed to change the sprocket when you change the chain, why get a sprocket that outlasts your chain??? :thumbsup:

I've been running ironman sprockets with a DID X-ring chain on my bike for over 60 hours and it shows no sign of wear. I adjusted my chain after my first ride and have not had to since. Excellent product!!!

Here's a link to both a good price, and a weight comparison between Ironman sprockets, regular steel sprockets and aluminum sprockets on my site:

Good price and weight comparison here

In short they are very slightly heavier than aluminum, a LOT lighter than regular steel sprockets. Combine these with a quality sealed chain and you're set for a very long while. I run these on my personal 426 and most of my riding buddies are now running them too. :thumbsup:
