Renthal lightweight alloy sprocket after 15,000 miles (at least)

When I bought my Triumph Tiger 1050, I remember noticing what a natty coloured rear sprocket was fitted. Matching tank and sprocket!

Here it is after 15k miles (of mine) when I thought I’d better change it. The edges were so thin that you could probably cut yourself on them.

Moral of the story. Steel & steel lasts longer than steel & alloy…
