Hello. I have a 2012 dyna super glide that a wheel bearing went bad and cause miss alignment of the chain and sprocket. The chain sheared all the teeth off the sprocket. My question is can I get away with just replacing both sprocket and keep the same chain? The chaining only was about 3k mile on it. Thanks for any info you can give me.

If the chain sheared all the teeth off the sprocket I would think it might have some undetected wear on the chain. Might want to consider that.

Never attribute to conspiracy that which is adequately explained by incompetence.

If it we're me, for the price of that chain, I'd be putting a new one on. 8)

I would also think that replacing the chain would be the best thing to do at this point.

Some pictures of your chain conversion would be an interesting addition to the thread.

Would have to agree with Tank that if that chain did that to your sprocket that I would not reuse it. Time for a new chain and sprocket.
