SPROCKET SCIENCE

When the teeth of a sprocket become pointed, hooked or worn (as shown) they must be replaced. It's usually a good idea to replace both the countershaft and drive sprocket at the same time. If the rear sprocket is worn, the countershaft sprocket probably needs replacement too, because it is under a lot more load as directs power to the rear wheel.

Also when replacing worn sprockets, install a new chain. Worn sprockets can cause premature wear on a new chain and vice versa.

   

Although sprockets are virtually maintenance-free, they must be kept in alignment with each other. Careless rear-wheel alignment will throw the countershaft and rear-wheel sprockets out of plain, causing the sides of the teeth and the inside of the chain's sideplates to wear unevenly. Aside from the wear factor, there's also the problem of adverse steering to cope with. Thanks to the flexibility of the roller chain, however, the sprockets can be out of plan to a certain extent without the danger of immediate chain failure occuring.
