I tried on several new, cheaper pairs (Fox, Thor, etc) and found the Sidi's much lighter and more comfortable.

I'm still wearing my work/hiking boots for around town errands and plan on using the Sidi's for anything offroad.

If money is an issue (as it was for me) I'd suggest cruising Craigslist and investing in a can of Lysol!
+1, I have never bought new riding gear. Go to your local cycle supply and try on what you want to get size and let your fingers do the shopping. While we are on the subject, I have these for sale. Un worn! $275 new. For you guys $140 shipped. US size 11. SIDI Air Traffic boots. PM me anytime.

You just need flat head allen screws to use this sprocket on your XRL.

I agree. The manufacturer address this concern in their FAQ section.

Q.10 I've seen cush drive rubbers that are much larger in the past, do these sprockets have the same cushioning effect?
A:
Yes. Large cush rubbers are usually made from a lower performance elastomer, and require extra surface area for compression to allow the elastomer to last. Usually due to the elastomers high compression set. Our products use high performance polyurethane elastomers which can handle the constant compression cycles while still returning to shape (low compression set). The long life of polyurethane plus the ability to control its hardness, allows the surface area to be approx. half that of the large older style cush drive rubbers.
Might as well be propaganda since it comes straight from the company, but that is how they explain it.

I'm going to order one and I'll let everybody know what I think.

These are tough handguards, I'd buy them again. The mirrors work, but not as well as the stock ones. I really like being able to fold them up offroad which the stickers don't do.
+1. They are worth the extra coin. Insane customer service too.

I thought that company gave up trying to make cush sprockets?

Anyway, my tires have tread, I don't think any knobbies are cracked, and the turn signals don't look like they are just hanging on with a bit of duct tape, going to try to get it inspected this year.

I think everything is kosher, unless they decide to mic the front rotor.

I would like to see your review of this product when you get it on the bike.
Will be looking for the follow up! Very interested.

Thanks Kurt

I hope it works out. Seems the kick ass elastomer they use would be too hard to give good cushion, but you never know! I do agree, no cush drive is annoying as..........

I would figure it would take very little 'cush' to provide the drivetrain with enough give to eliminate the countershaft wear, assuming it is even from lack of a cush drive.

I see these midair pics and I get jealous, no one ever around to snap a good pic!

Yikes, Red. That looked a little scary. Glad you got 'er out of there by yourself. Looks like a gorgeous area. Lots of folks out in town. I don't know how you get away with blowing past those 20mph signs like that. You must not be the only neighborhood hooligan!
