Cracked sprocket

Hey everyone, I have a 06 ZX10 and I was changing my oil this weekend and I was looking over the bike and saw the rear sprocket was cracked in not 1 but 2 places! I rarely do wheelies and do get hard on the throttle in the lower gears but the chain is in good shape. The chain and sprocket have about 15k on them and have always been kept within OEM specs. I have ordered another chain and sprocket but I was wondering if there was something weird that causes this. I did an internet search and all I could find is having a chain be too loose.

Wheel alignment can maybe put a strain on the rear sprocket as well. 15k is a lot out a set so it was about time for news ones anyway..

literbikes! My baby 636 has 34,900 on the original sprockets. Ordering new stuff this weekend though since the teeth are starting to hook a bit. Pretty sure the 3 year old chain on there doesn't have any O rings left to speak of either.

That was the crazy part. Sprocket cracked but wasn't wearing out the teeth at all. They are still 95%, no waving at all.

Check your Cush drives as well, doubt they are worn with that mileage but that's all low miles for that issue with sproket.
