you should always change sprockets when going to a new chain.The old sprockets will wear out the new chain. I have always gone with DID chain. Oh and oring if available

Not trying a highjack here but do you guys notice one or the other sprocket wearing faster? Seems my countershaft starts to hook way before the rear is worn out. I use a Renthal counter and a Sunstar steel on the rear.
