Is my sprocket worn?

This is my first motorcycle and I know absolutely nothing... Now from my understanding, replacing a chain by itself is easy since I'll just have to fish the new chain through, but replacing the sprockets is the hard part since I'll have to dismount the wheel. I could probably put on a clip on master link while I'm at home and then go to the Harley Davidson shop nearby and pay them to rivet the rivet-on master link

I have a new sprocket for that/our bike. If you bring the bike to me I have the tools to do it.

I have more of a scientific approach to sprocket wear. What I do first is count all the teeth on it. Then I look up the manufacturer's specs on said sprocket to determine the number of teeth the sprocket should have. I then subtract the former from the latter. A-B=C. If C>2 then I need a new sprocket.

It doesn't look like it needs replacing yet.
It's recommendable to replace chain and sprockets at the same time. As they wear together.
