PS - All aluminum sprockets suck, IMO, on a liter bike.

And I like their gas caps too!! Never had a problem with their sprockets on my track bikes. But, I made sure to not match new sprockets to old chains and vice/versa.
If you are looking to get a lot of miles out of a sprocket on the street, I would definitely get a steel sprocket though. And you need to change your chain and front sprocket at the same time as the rear sprocket. Did you know that your sprocket will wear out according to how much your chain is stretching. So, if you put a new sprocket/s on a chain this is already a little bit stretched - the sprocket/s will wear into the chain stretch and get worn out quickly (especially an aluminum sprocket).
By the same token, putting a new chain on used sprockets doesn't work either. The sprocket teeth are worn a little thinner and the chain will not ride on the sprockets correctly. It will make noise and not feel so smooth. If it's an aluminum sprocket, the sprocket will destroy itself - teeth break off maybe. If it's a steel sprockets, the chain will just wear out prematurely, or pop off and cause more damage.
I don't understand why people just don't change it all out together...??
