It is not the sprocket we are concerned about in terms of wear. The 13t sprocket causes the chain to wear and rub more on the swing arm pivot where there is a plastic wear block. That slide or wear block appears to be rapidly wearing such that the chain may soon cut through and start damaging the swing arm.
