Both my countershaft and rear sprockets are in need of replacing, at 3500km.

These are the sprockets that came with the bike when I bought it new. Is this reasonable life?

Just checking to see if I need to change my maintenance regime re lubing the chain.

From what I've read on Thumpertalk, I'm going steel for the new sprockets as they seem to last longer.

2500kms or 2170 Miles on sprockets is a very long time in my opinion.
I can't get 1500 out of a set of stockers.
Iron man is the way to go, or Sidewinder if you have buckets of money.
