No, but it was well past replacement time anyway, look at those teeth, maybe why it failed?

Guessing, chain and sprockets so bad you had to run it too tight, Tight is what took the outer ring attchements

Defiantly keeping it but the sprocket wasn't old it didn't have 30 hours on it all of the set screws backed out and it decided to do what it did chain is still mint no other damage other than the chain guide but my friend did the same thing on his crf and ripped the case open luckily his dad was mechanic and machinist

you could probably put that sprocket on a table saw and it would shred logs, that thing is beyond the point of worn, the sharp bent teeth are an indicator of being past due...

IMO it really shouldn't matter if the teeth were stripped completely off, it should not have failed. This just reinforces why i buy plain ol steel sprockets, looks and or the minuscule weight savings aren't worth it.

let me give you a little hint about mechanics, the more parts you have the more chance for failure!
