I know this has probably been answered before, but I'm too lazy to do a search. How long do sprockets normally last?

Depends on the rider and whether you are talking steel or aluminum.
I would guess that your stock steel sprockets should last somewhere around 12,000 miles if properly taken care of.
Around this time you should consider changing both front and rear as well as your chain.
Mileage may vary...

I ride pretty hard and I just replaced mine at 16,000 miles, both front, rear + chain. I took care by always checking the chain and tightening if necessary. I also made sure the chain was lubed good.

My chain lasted exactly 10k, but was skipping big time the week before I changed it out. I currently have almost 13k on the stock rear steel sprocket, very little wear so far. I would imagine the rear would easily last to 20k. I just changed to a 14t front sprocket for gearing, even though it wasn't worn. I ride pretty hard, wheelie a couple times a day, over 1k a month, rarely lube the chain (bad habit).
