I found a good 29 tooth ransmission sprocket on Ebay. It looks like new. As far as I know there is nothing wrong with the 27 tooth I have now. I watched a quick youtube video and that guy changed a spacer and a seal behind the sprocket. I think it was all a kit. I bought the bike used with 42K miles. It has never leaked any fluids. I have a little first gear shifting problem that I don't think has anything to do with the transmission sprocket.
My question is if I pop the sprocket off and it and the spacer look okay should I change the seal behind it? I alwasy hate it when I cause a problem messing with something I should have left alone

Once the sprocket is removed check the seal for leaks. If there's leakage or even seepage change the seal ... easy job. Pop the old seal out with a pick and tap the new one in with a soft faced hammer until it's flush with the case.
Coat the spacer with lube and slip through the seal until it stops.
