It can definitely go another chain. I wouldn't change a steel sprocket until 3 or 4 chains have gone through it. More if it looks good. My current set is on it's 2nd chain with no issues.

However, I'm pretty sure someone's going to chime in and say that if you don't replace both sprockets and the chain all at once, you're bike is going to set on fire, crash into an orphanage, and explode.

I really don't like the color. Looks like it could use some road grime.

Mine after 44000Km is worn but not that bad, can go for another, to be on the safe side i would replace it for ease of mind. the real question is why such a wear? chain too tight or too loose?

i would take advise from a macanick, he is obviously exceptionally qualified and cannot be rated as the average mechanic. Where have you been the past 200 odd years
