its always a good thing to change everything at the same time. that way 4000 down the road you dont need a new rear sprocket and not a chain

Conventional wisdom says yes..change all at same time....one reason is even slightly worn sprockets will accelerate the ware on a new chain and reduce its life......its cheaper in the long run!

totally agree...

Just curious, how long do the OEM sprockets last with good care? what are people's experience?

Lots of variables determine chain/sprocket life such as chain tension, sprocket hardness, lubrication . . . oh I'm getting excited now. I always replace as a set . . . just put a 520 conversion on my R1 last month right before buying the Marchesinis. Why didn't somebody tell me OEM sprockets wouldn't fit them? Now I get to buy another set :bawling:

I use FBF's quick change and thus their Alu sprockets. 6k mi/two oil changes with good care.
is the quick change really only applicable to the 750? the 1k has a quick-change setup on it already - as far as i can tell...

Thanks, now you tell me. :cussing: So I got you worried, huh? Afraid you won't be able to keep up? :stickpoke But are you getting wave rotors and titanium bolts :loser: Since I was buying gears, I ordered stock and -1 CS, +1 and +2 rears just to have a complete set.

Depends on if you want to buy the FBF replacement sprockets or OEM sprockets. The carrier fits both as far as I know.
