12,000 miles . Admittedly quite a few of those were through sandy spring water so I suppose it has accelerated the wear somewhat. Hopefully it will last for another 150ish  miles till I can get it done. I mean, what could go wrong?

It's goosed, but truth be told, I'd probably go another careful 150 miles if that were me.
I do a lot of dumb sh#t, though.

Looks like its about ready for taking off and reversing, in about 6k miles the teeth will be straight again and ready to do another 12.... :whistle:
No solution is insurmountable...

When you can use your sprocket to pick your teeth you either need a new sprocket or a better dentist.

Made it to 12,500 miles, new sprocket and chain fitted ready for the winter grind.

I'm sorry, really bad reception here, you said your name was Dr. who?

ya know for the cost of it is it really worth pushing it that far, I am very far from risk adverse in general but what did you save by running it that far, you didn't save the cost of the sproket as you have to buy one, you saved the sum of reasonble wear to ridiculous wear so pence per mile probably less that a penny per mile. That my friend, if it had let go,at best  wrecks your engine casings  and at worst sent you flying down the road.

Yes, youíre right of course. I wonít let it get this bad again, I just didnít realise/notice how worn it was. I was lucky.
