The drive chain on my 97 XLT let go last winter at topspeed and disintergrated my chain case. I'm replacing the case, cover, chain and gasket. The top sproket lost some teeth and obviously needs to be replaced. The sled has reverse so there are some additional sprokets in there. One of the smaller sprokets for reverse lost teeth as well. My question is do I need to replace every sproket in the case even if some look to be ok? How about the berrings and berring seals. I'm trying to keep it cheap, but I don't want any problems down the trail either.

I am in the process of replacing and upgrading bearings/chains/sprokets etc.

I personally would change all the bearings/chain and sprokets while you have it opened up. Some pieces might have some small stress cracks from the damage that are not visible and will only get worse. A few bucks now, however will be cheaper in the long run.

I agree - replace it all or you will be doing the same job again.
