Is it best to replace the sprockets when I replace my chain once it hit the wear mark

I have 17K on my bike now and I'm in the process or ordering a new chain so just wondering should I be ok with the chain only or should I replaced the sprockets and chain.

you would be better off getting a new sprocket as well

If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

If you put a new chain on old sprockets it will just wear out the chain faster. Always replace them as a matched set like lifters and cams in a car.
