A buddy has a rear sprocket that is really hooked with the teeth hooked towards the front of the bike. Is this a chain slack issue? The chain has about an inch and a half of play in it. The bike has about 5k miles on it.

He will replace the sprockets and chain now.

Ah, Aluminum sprockets. You must pay to play on the MV. Exotic bikes/parts mean more maintenance and more money.

On my dirt bike when they get hooked the chain and sprockets are way shot. 5000 miles sounds early on the street, maybe bad metal.

MV Agusta? Is that a fireblade? ;-) Is that the one with the 4 pipes under the rear seat? If so then I heard from some guy who's got one of those that he's already been through 2 sets of camshafts! He's now done over 10,000 miles.

That rear sprocket and chain sound like they are made from chocolate or cardboard. Why do some expensive bikes use such cheap materials?
