Depends on the quality of the sprocket but again generally the front wears quicker. 
The chain and sprockets I've just replaced:
Chain and rear sprocket lasted 56,173km. The front that less 7,000km. So the front I've just taken off could have lasted longer but the chain was shagged. I suppose I could have changed them all at the same time 7k km ago but the chain didn't seem too bad.

Pretty weird how did I manage 36K Km on my honda with the same front sprocket,
because the rear was getting shot !!!

Your 7K longevity made me want to check mine, I think it's still in pretty good shape,
what do you think !?



Thanks for all these infos !

Well leak now sorted- new water pump inlet pipe and o ring.
System filled and no leaks. Run to fan on and still no leaks.


Now all I need is correct front sprocket and I can actually ride. For some reason my 525 chain and sprocket kit had a 520 front sprocket.

Hi, it's seems that I have the same issue. Why did you bought the pipe?

I'm thinking in buying just the clip  (T3707580 | Hose Clip Dia 20-32)

will it work?

The corrosion on the old pipe. New pipe and new o ring = no leak.

I had a leak in mine after draining my coolant and a new o-ring was all that was needed, but if it's corroded it makes sense to replace the entire piece.
