I'm replacing the chain on a CB350 and am trying to determine if the sprockets need to be replaced as well. What do you guys think?

I would replace the sprockets w/ the new chain,but you could just throw a cheap chain on there and get a season's worth of wear on it and then replace the chain and sprockets;that's what I would do if i was going to run that bike in the Fall,Winter & Spring as transportation.

That rear sprocket is worn.

They look a little worn, but not too bad. I'd just clean them up and put a new chain on it. I NEVER replace sprockets every time I replace the chain. On a well-maintained street bike with steel sprockets, a standard chain will wear out much faster than the sprockets. Just examine the sprockets from time to time and replace them if the teeth start showing signs of hooking.

You can get a set of sprockets and chain for under $100. Why mess around.... Not the place to go way cheap.

$82 plus Shipping: Chain and Sprocket Kit for 1968-1973 Honda CB350 - Power-Barn

Shop around, the prices go all over the place....

My Chain cost $24 and was not the least expensive.

A new chain set, kept lubed, will last a long time on these bikes. Worth the cost.

bilbikek411, Dabba, 83XLX, Mydlyfkryzis & Finnigan,

Thank you guys for the responses! I thought over all of the advice and to save a few $ I'm going to throw a cheap chain on for now, then replace everything at once when the time comes.
