Chain Life

How many miles are people getting out of a chain and sprocket set with the XR.

My bike has just on 10k Miles and in the last  500 miles the rate the chain is strecthing has increased a lot. Also the rear sprocket is showing signs of hooking. The bike is used all year round including during the winter in the UK.
This seems early to me as my previous bikes have gone to at least 16k before needing replacement. So what are others seeing?

I replaced my chain and sprockets at 19,000 miles (31.000 KM). I admit that I was poor at chain maintenance and did not clean, lube, and adjust as often as I should have.
