bad sprocket

i have an 01 600 and it rides great, no real problems, but today i changed the oil and thought i'd lube up the chain. right off i noticed a missing tooth. kept on spinning and 6 total are missing. bad right? like i said i have not had any problems- none chain related. could i just swap the rear sprocket, money to tight for front, rear and a chain at this moment. or just leave it and ride?

Re: bad sprocket

what could happen from a bad sprocket? im not saying ride it out and see im just wonder what could happen, like the chain just loose track and go limp while riding? like no doubt that would be bad especially in a situation where you needed to go

sorry didnt mean to get off track, just wonderin..

and if money is tight look on ebay, they sell whole kits for our bikes for 80$ 90 BUY NOW

Re: bad sprocket

the chain could come off the sprokets and get caught up in them, the chain could break and smash into the sproket cover and crack it, your wheel could lock up while riding....

a.k.a. :A number of really bad things you dont want to happen, dont ride it

Re: bad sprocket

Replace it straight away, will cost ya more if you don't. Hate a guy trailer his bike in with a combination of no teeth and a loose chain, his chain snapped and wound around the front sprocket, bent the output shaft and stuffed the seals and bearings.

Re: bad sprocket

I've heard of guys getting flesh whipped off from a chain breaking due to broken teeth. Change it! Be careful.

Re: bad sprocket

well i risked it all and rode in yesterday, 30 miles each way, because i thought cycle gear would have the rear in stock and i would put it on at work, but they didn't have it. i parked it and will not ride until it's fixed. even though i still couldn't tell any difference. oh well. thanks for all the responces.

Re: bad sprocket

Not sure that I have a front to spare. I don't have any new chains and I would have to count the links on the ones I have. I have different sprockets and chain lengths because of the HUGE dunlop slicks. I'll see what I have and let you know.

Re: bad sprocket

You can get a chain/sprocket kit for -$200.00. You'd be NUTS to ride it until all get replaced. The motor damages mentioned above painful enough to think about and that probably happened riding in a straight line. Imagine that chain snapping in a fast corner??? I am glad that at least you found it, know it's there and did not become another motor/human casualty - I'll bet you now start to inspect your machine a little bit more.

Best wishes and be well.
