In fact, I just completed an upgrade on my 796... I got the new carrier and quick change sprocket setup. Costwise, it's a wash, assuming you will replace your sprocket at least one more time, and... of course... it makes it much easier. I would also plan on replacing the cush-drive inserts; mine have about 11K miles on them and they are fairly trashed. I have the old sprocket, still, if you want pictures of it.
