Why would 1/4 to 1/2 of the teeth on my rear sprocket be gone?
Im just wondering if this would be normal wear and tear or ....?

wheelies on an aluminum sproket will do it.

uhmm correction steel sprockets will do that as well. It's called improper chain tension, lack of lubricant, uneven alignment, and if you notice you tend to adjust your chain more frequently then it means your chain is a gonner. So Im glad to hear you say that a new chain n sprockets are coming soon.
