Have you replaced the sprocket lately? I wouldn't expect to loose that many in one ride. Were they torqued?
Ever since racing karts I got into the habit of using Loctite blue on every nut/bolt I I turn.
Be sure to closely inspect the sprocket hub, With half missing I'd expect to see a bit of 'wallering' around the holes which will accelerate future problems.

:ride: Once after I recently put on new sprockets one bolt fell off and got caught between the sprocket and swing arm. It ripped a little whole in the swing arm but wasnt too bad and wasnt near a weld or any thing. So it's still their.
