sprocket question - July 15, 2010, 08:55 PM

So I have obviously been a bad boy and not maintaining my chain like I should have.... I have the driven 520 kit on my 07 gsxr 1000 and I noticed today that I have a good amount of chipped or broken teeth on my rear sprocket. I know obviously I need to buy a new chain and sprocket but my question is how long will I be able to limp around like this. I haven't noticed any adverse affects while riding it so do u guys think I will be able to get one or two good spirited rides out of this thing before my new stuff shows up?

I wouldn't risk it. The torque, especially on your bike, may cause the chain to skip on the teeth possibly breaking more and making your ride not very fun. On the extreme side, it could cause your chain to snap causing a lot of damage.

You can maybe take it easy around town, but I wouldn't recommend going hard until you are able to change it. Still plenty of time in the season to get some rides in, not worth the risk for 1 or 2 rides before you stuff arrives.
