when you replace the oil chain, would it be advisable to change the sprockets too? Can you change the sprockets? I know it is good practice in other sprocket/chain arrangements to change them as a set...what say ye?
nope,they do not normally wear out.save your dollars and put it to the price of a camchain,its on the shelf then when you need it

Rick, I lengthened the slots with a couple strokes of a rat tale file at a time then tried it. It took several cycles of doing this to get the slots where I needed them. The chain was around $40 as I recall.
Linny and Rick,iv done the the exact same thing to both my bikes,it takes a few seconds to do.when done,its very easy to set the chain spec. up as per described in the manual[2mm-3.5mm,at the top run].

i think its an engineering blip.hardly enough adjustment even with a new chain.
