I was just going thru my records, and I noticed that I REMOVED 3 'flats' of chain adjustment (loosened the chain half a turn) when I replaced the countershaft sprocket at 29,xxx miles, indicating that there was a LOT of wear in the 'valleys' of it.

Except for the ONE 'noisy' link when I changed the chain at 56,xxx miles, MOST of the chain adjustments had been due to wear in the 'valleys' on the REAR (and front) sprockets, so THAT had been the culprit, NOT the chain.
