About 120 bucks. For most bikes, it's a 2 hour job, at about 60 bucks an hour.

It's actually very easy with the right tools. Without the right tools... PITA.

Ask around, you might be able to get somebody to help you do it for 20 bucks, or a pizza and some beer. Once you see how it's done, you'll never have to pay to have it done again. It's even worth buying a chain breaker/rivet tool, it'll pay for itself the first time around.

Cheers,
B

Am I missing something here? Is this not something you can do yourself, or with a little help?

Yes, you can do it yourself. Really easy with the right tools, even easier if someone is showing you what to do. Sometimes, the countersprocket is jammed on there pretty good, might need an impact wrench to get it off. That's about the 'hardest' part.

Dude that is easy, I've changed sprockets tires and chains in between morning practice and race 1. It takes about a half hour. If you're planning of running at trackdays, I wouldn't suggest using the master link clip type. It's going to fall off and you will loose your chain and maybe worse. I have impact gun, not sure what size socket, let me know, and I also have a puller for the sprocket. Ok, it may take a bit longer depending on the bodywork removal, I forgot about all the little push pins and screws for that shit.
