Anyone had any experience with one of these Titanium Chains? The "Smart Chain" looks kind of interesting too.
Krause Racing's Sidewinder Sprockets Motorcycle Chain and ATV Chain
I had one on my TL1000R and didn't have any issues with it, and I used to wheelie the crap out of that beast (I was younger then..lol). Their customer service is pretty good too....at least it was in the past.
I haven't used them, but I have heard good things about their products
If its made out of Titanium that could only mean 1 thing, its better.
08 Busa - Black/Grey
08 Honda Civic Hybrid - Silver
03 Acura NSX-Targa (fully modded) - Red
Their chains go up to 16,000 Lb tensile strength ... Holy SH1T!
the smart chain and the Ti chain are for motocross and atv use.

Why retros are safer than HID kits
One thing concerned me, as listed in one of the reviews:
Oops...just remembered something else IMPORTANT I learned tonight. The Sidewinder chain and sprockets
are made to match. I thought I would try the Smart Chain on my stock sprockets to see if I could fit a 110 link
on the bike with adjusters (they go way back....if you've noticed). It fit on the countersprocket ok, BUT I COULD
NOT GET IT TO ROLL AROUND THE STOCK REAR SPROCKET. The links were hanging up on the teeth. Wheel
would not turn. Spacing between links and sprocket teeth did not match.

It is not titanium just nick named that...it is however very strong have used three on big horsepower projects..its a heavy chain.
Actually, it is an O-ring chain, however, it's the O-rings of any chain that is the, "weak link," so to speak. If the materials of the O-rings themselves wear out as fast as any other O-ring, it won't last any longer.
For the price, it would have to last twice as long as a standard chain in order for it to be worth it for me and how long chains last on my bike.
I'm skeptical at best.....
