Depends on what you get. Sprocketcenter has a kit with chain, front and rear sprockets, with a quick change carrier for the SS for $329, depending on what chain you add.

https://sprocketcenter.com/street-sp...-panigale.html

I plan on changing the cush drive when I do the full replacement, so that's gonna bump it up to almost $500. That's with me doing the labor. The chain by itself is around $140 on Amazon, so yeah, I'll just be doing the chain the first time around.

Decent sprockets are normally around $40-50 for rear, $25 or so front if you go aftermarket and not OEM. A decent chain is in the $100-$150 range.

Is it the exact same cost, no, but say $75 for sprockets and $100 for a chain, it's close enough for discussion.

well that's about the same as my other chain driven bikes, $75 for sprockets and another $125-150 for a chain (that chain appears to be pretty long). For those numbers I'd replace the sprockets everytime.

Now 1UB has me in wonderland. I am not familiar with a quick change carrier (but assume it's a one time cost). Are the cush drives a high wear item? I've never replaced them.

You should introduce us to your supplier. We could all do with paying those prices. Any links available?

You'll have to buy the sprocket carrier as well if you go with those rear sprockets

They aren't a high wear item, but I have seen what they can do when they wear. Once the rubber starts to crack, the cush drives can back out and start to wear the hub where your spanner turns the entire hub. Here's a link.
How to lose unsprung rear weight (single-sided swingarm cush drive joys)

The odds are probably rare, but worth changing for preventive maintenance, IMO.

Good discussion here! I think I'm leaning towards only replacing the chain since I can do it myself fairly easily, put a snap link on the chain and drive it slowly to the dealer where they can rivet it on properly in about a minute or two.

But are we in agreement that my chain needs replacing based on the video I posted? :P

Mine was complety shot as wel @ 24.500 km. Just changed mine voor a Tsubaki chain. The Tsubaki chain is a bit wider and stronger as well. The rear sprocket of our model specifiek is more expensive than reguler model because of the construction.
