    On our New Year's Baja trip I saw the same thing happen to a new sprocket on a very nice Husa

    I stopped running aluminum sprockets long ago..cheap ass JT steel sprockets have lasted me forever. sure they are heavy but I have never had an issue..but I also check my chain tensions any time I take the bike out.

    as for what happened in the pic .. lack of maintenance would be my guess . just about any bike I have ever seen do that had a dry ass kinked up chain and most likely not properly adjusted.

    Well, they did buy a foo foo bike to ride around the world. I'm gonna call it and say first bike, no experience riding or maintaining a motorcycle. Think they know everything because they read adv rider. Total noobs.
