I have an aluminum rear sprocket right now, 47 teeth.
I'm getting a new chain, a D.I.D 520VM.
I want a stronger rear sprocket and the bike came with a 52 tooth Ironman rear sprocket in a box. It looks to be in great shape.
The bike has a Renthal 14 tooth front sprocket.
So, if I swap out the 47 tooth for the 52 tooth I'm guessing I'm going to get a bit more umph down low and lose a bit of top end (which I don't really need in the dirt).

I did notice some wear on the chain after 1 day (50 miles). The "gold" came off the tops and bottoms of the links. I cleaned the chain 2 times while riding (and when we were finished of course).
Any idea on where it is wearing? The chain guard maybe?
