My local dealer (Webbs of Lincoln) supplied a pattern set, which was a bit cheaper than Triumphs,  can't recall name; point being it's worth asking.....main reason for posting is to ask about the rubbing strip,  there's been a lot on here about the damage caused if it's rubbed Off?

No chance of it being worn away underneath. The chain is so slack the only thing it touches is the tarmac  :005:

I watched a YouTube video last night from Delboys garage.  He was raving about JT sprockets and how they're the best you can get. Took a look on eBay and have found a full kit with JT front and rear and a DID VX chain with gold plates and black runners. 98.99 delivered. So think I'll give that a try as it looks good and it's a quality item.

Mine is 50t

Some bikes have 49t instead.

Not sure of your question?, but - I think? - Triumph only used 49 and 50 on the Tiger800s.
There are, of course, many different rear wheel sprockets for motorcycles with many different numbers of teeth.
A sprocket for a 525 size chain will work on any bike with a 525 chain -- if it mounts-up correctly.
(machine shops may modify almost any similar sprocket in other sizes (no. of teeth) to mount-up correctly...)
The Tiger800 can - directly - use sprockets from 675 Daytona & Striple which come in 47 T & 50 T.

Aftermarket company, JT Sprockets, offer both 47 T & 50 T rear sprockets as well as front sprockets in 14 T thru 17 T sizes in both plain and rubber damped/cushioned style.
I've ridden all-around the United States and parts of Arkansas.

I always fit d.i.d chains jt sprockets are a cheaper set and do ok . What ever you do change the lot le chain & sprockets together. Try and buy from a reputable deal so you don't buy a fake
