The shape of the teeth suggest it's practically unused, everything else suggests it's lived 20 years at the bottom of a dirty toolbox
Good eye! I was trying to give y'all the best angle to see that slightly worn profile. You can see it with the naked eye if you look real close. It's harder to pick that up on camera. But you better make sure you don't swap the sprocket around the other way when you put it back on.Bottom of this photo definitely shows off the asymmetrical hook-teeth profile of wear.
I was forced to store it under a covered shed in Alabama weather for a few years and didn't oil the chain set like I should have during storage. So it developed a lot of surface rust. And dirt dobber nests....(potter wasps for you northerners...lol)The shape of the teeth suggest it's practically unused, everything else suggests it's lived 20 years at the bottom of a dirty toolbox
Yup, it's what Honda recommends too!This front sprocket is my OEM sprocket that came on the bike brand new. It has 30,000+ hard miles!! The chain wear indicator on the swingarm is still in the green "New". Hardly any chain stretching since my initial break in period.
LUCAS 80/90W Gear oil! Stop using chain wax! It's one of the biggest scams out there. Listen to the chain manufacturer. The results speak for themselves. (1) bottle of gear oil ($15) will last about 15k miles. How many cans of chain wax would you go through in that same time period? Which is easier to clean off when it does sling onto your exhaust pipe/tag?
