    Good....check them splines, that corrosion "powder" is abrasive. I think you need a new sprocket, if just to check the mating of them splines and compare to the old one. You may....or may not, find a little surprise there.:eek1

    Hopefully it's a 520 chain, given that's what the sprocket is marked as :evil

    Oooops...I did a quick search in the JT catalogue, looks like the front sprocket listed is a JTF516-16 for a 520 chain. Can't really read your numbers on your front but I think you should really look at what came out and crossreference there, you may have mismatched parts.

    A little Cut&Paste from somewhere:

    {Pitch is the distance between two roller centers. Having the same pitch means they will all fit on the thinner sprocket. 520, 525, and 530 will all fit on a 520 sprocket, but a 530 sprocket will only fit 530 chain.}

    Well that might explain the short chain life.
