Default Is this sprocket too worn?

Can't decide whether to change this sprocket on my Daytona or whether it's got some life left. What do you think?

Does the chain need replacing?

Tbh I'd leave it until the chain needs doing, and then do both

Ditto, it'll last until chain needs doing.

Maybe a different approach.....
How much does a front sprocket cost and can you do it yourself? If it's maybe 15/20 for a JT or similar and it increases the life of the chain significantly it might be cost effective to change it. If you need to pay to have it done then probably not cost effective.
It's visibly worn, and it tends to give the chain a harder time once it gets significantly out of shape. The refinement also tends to start suffering.
Just a thought.

Yeah worth considering I suppose, I hate cracking front sprocket nuts off!

I always think that chain and sprockets wear as a set (logical when you consider that as one item wears the load is transferred onto the next so that wears faster and so on) so if any one component is changed its replacement will just wear rapidly until equilibrium is reached again....

Surely a front sprocket wears around 3 times faster as it has for example 16 teeth as opposed to the rears 40 odd so it each tooth contacts the chain three times for every one of the rears.

Just my take on it.
