Not sure what kind of sprockets we have now on Ciliegia and in what state they are, but the chain is scheduled for the 40k maintenance (I have to adjust too frequently by now). It'll be 25k km old by then.

I just don't want to replace it with a bigger one to have to replace the sprocket all the time due to cheaply made. My next step on my bike is replacing the bulbs with less minus the headlight. This will reduce the very small load and power robbed from the motor.

Unfortunately it probably won't (the generator circuit design is stupid (cheap and light, I guess) on most bikes - the generated power depends on the revs only and it converts the excess power to heat). Replacing them (to LEDs, for example) means less burden on the battery, though.

Comes handy when you turn off the engine.

Oh, and about cheap sprockets: the chain Hyosung put on our bike in the factory was essentially dead within 15k km, and we're not alone with it. Not very convincing about its quality, is it?

The one we got after that one is definitely better.

Yeah when the chain goes I plan on replacing the sprocket with a 15 tooth(stock is 14) or having someone replace it depending on how convenient I feel on doing all that. I just was wondering if the replacement sprockets are same or better quality.

Honestly, I would change it before the chain is needed.
When chain is needed, there is a fair chance your bike shop would not want to fit anything but OEM setup.
Also, depending on your current mileage, chain replacement could be in several years.

Having replaced sprockets on 2 bikes, I have not been disappointed by longevity.

Your most likely disappointment will probably be the modesty of the felted change and you will wonder how much more she could have handled.
