:) i was being sarchastic haha.
my main point of the thread was to ask if 12-52 is good gearing for a jump bike.

im looking for the best gearing for jumps and wheelies, i have 2 other bikes and this one will be wheelie/jumps only. the others i bought set up already, 1 for trail riding, 1 a bit meaner for the track.

thanks in advance

The chain being worn out is what ruined the sprocket. If the rear doesn't look like that, it is either a super hard *steel rear, or will look like the front very soon.
*(even a super hard rear will be worn like the front if you continue to run the same chain.)
If the rear has even the slightest bit of deformation at all, change it too.

12/52 gearing is more suited for woods riding in sigle track.
For the track, a 13/49-52 would be a better ratio choice for the 125cc.

I'd just keep it stock ratios and since you are replacing the front sprocket, replace the rear and the chain at the same time. Make sure you scrub your chain well after every ride, and immediately lube it afterwards to keep it from rusting. It will last a long time if you take care of it...

what makes the 13/49-52 gearing better than 12/52 gearing?
whats the difference and how does each apply to each application, sorry for all the questions, im just trying to get the best performance possible for what i need out of my bike.

thanks
