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

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.
