My buddy in Michigan got the Ti chain from Sidewinder and it really does last!
Looks good and wears well. I just think I can buy two O-ring chains for that kind of money and they should last as long.

I go through chain and sprockets 4 times a year. About 1,500 miles is all I will get out of a set. And you know that I lube mine after every ride and wash. The best I can get is about 3 months or 10 weekends of riding and they are toast! I feel real bad because I have not bothered to send my sprockets in and claim them under the 1 year warranty. But then again I am not your average weekend rider.
That's horrible.... I had several thousand miles on my 426, two race seasons worth of abuse, the engine was shot after two years, it was rebuilt with all 5 gears,new piston,cylinder,valves etc... The funny thing is, the stock chain and sprokets were perfect... Same with my 03... I tried to use an aluminum Renthal sprocket just to see if I could save some weight, it lasted a couple of rides.. Went back to the stock setup... You must ride more mud than I do..

I spent $350 for the Sidewinder set up....a little over half that for replacement Ironman and DID. If the Sidewinder lasted twice as long ....I would have considered it a wash....IMO it wasn't.
