If you are looking for weight savings go with Aluminum, if you are looking for longevity then go with steel. There is a combo sprocket. The stealth sprocket.Discuss.
See abovei saw a combination one once, and have been trying to find it for a while...
it had an aluminum center and then steel teeth attached to it. it was pretty legit.

I think the general rule is a 1/3 of the life of steel.:werd That's kinda spendy!
I have a steel sprocket right now. (47tooth JT sprocket) but just noticed this weekend it's a little warped. I've been running it for about 15k miles so I guess it did its job. Lol...
I wanted to go with steel again (Driven) But on motomummy they don't offer a 47tooth. But they do offer a 47 tooth in aluminum. I just don't know if I want to go aluminum because they don't last as long.
Anyone know (roughly) how long an aluminum sprocket will last?
:fact got a smokin deal on a chain/sprocket kit from them last week.significantly less than steel. depending on how much you ride i'd say 7500 miles ish. Look at superbikesupply.com too.
