This is on the 250 right? Also you broke rule #1 by letting an idiot friend touch your bike.

Fast, cheap, reliable... pick two!

How many miles did it go to get like that? There are several factors that lead that condition. That looks like a newish chain, you missed the sprocket condition on swap out?

And how in the hell can a front sprocket even move the chain with no teeth, or nubs? At least mine had nubs...

I'm surprised you were getting any acceleration at all from a worn front sprocket like that. Next time check your chain/sprocket every 500miles or so.

Shocked to see a sprocket worn that much, but replacing a $15 front sprocket is way cheaper than what you'd need to replace had you made the chain too tight versus too loose - ask me how I know. You should just be happy the chain did not jump off the sprocket and lockup the rear wheel sending you over the bars.
