One of the largest variables, is how you align the chain, the chain tension, if you lube it and what you lube it with. I had a 16 tooth rubber dampened on my 07, original chain and sprockets still going at 30,000 KM, the new owner wanted it restored to OEM, I put the 15 tooth back on and sold the 16 tooth, which had roughly 30,000 KM on it. There are members on here that have less than 6000 KM with a bad chain and sprockets. So this isn't like changing plugs or checking the valve shim clearance, each case is different.
