Same here. I got a 15t sunstar front sprocket off ebay for 20$, just gotta find a good deal on a 46t rear and a new chain. I like those E.K. colored ones,,but idk...I'm pretty sure everyone's gonna say its best to change them all at the same time,,,I'm just wondering how much it would cost to have someone do the work if I can get the parts??

Have you checked your front sprocket? When I replaced my chain at 15k miles I changed the sprockets out too. The Rear Sprocket had minimal wear on it but the front sprocket was trashed. The chain itself had 3 kinks that I noticed, but you know how hard I ride the lil 6 hundy

I would say if you kept up the maintence of the chain such as right tension and lubrication and there are no "kinks" in the chain, then you are fine.

FWIW Andy at STX hooked me up with Chain and Sprocket Set and even installed it for me. Give him a holler he's at 290 and the Beltway

if you are replacing both, go with a supersprox rear sprocket. these things are good for life, and only like $20 more than a regular sprocket. i'm glad i got one. it will save me another pain in the job.

If you compare the sprocket to a new one you'll see the lines are alot sharper, the teeth rounded and also cut deeper from wear.

If you do one and not the other a new wear pattern will be established, causing increased wear. Even if the other is replaced at a later date, you're half-lifing the parts due to wear already established.
