My back tire spins when its up on the stand too. Just the clutch dragging in the oil.

As long as the bike isn't trying to walk away on its own when it is on the ground, it is fine.

People will complain about anything if it means saving a buck. Is this person going to buy it?

And chain noise is usually tension related.

The teeth start to look like they are "bent" or in some cases actually bend. If they look even on both sides, then the sprockets are ok.

I would have to say you can replace the chain and keep the sprockets (if they are good) but I wouldn't put new sprockets on and keep an old chain. Some people will debate that and say replace it all at once every time... but whatever.

Idk, the angle is kind of funny so it is hard to tell.

You would be better able to tell on your own, but you know what to look for now. The teeth start to wear in one direction. You can still get plenty of life out of the pic I posted, but they are indeed worn.

Yours, at least that front one, appear to be just fine. Just make sure to keep the chain lubed.
