Drive Sprocket Play, Torque

Recommended Posts

I just cleaned and lubed my chain and noticed that the drive sprocket has a bit of lateral play in it as if the bolts aren't tight.  Is this normal?  I would think it should be tight with no play in it.  I have the service manual and it makes no mention of the torque spec for the drive sprocket.  In fact, it only mentions the drive sprocket once and simply says to "tighten the bolts".

Did some fishing around and apparently its normal to have some play in the drive sprocket to avoid binding of the chain.

Even my sprocket moves as if it were loose. I have replaced him and the plate fixing also. It seems that is normal that it moves a bit

Some play is normal. They been building them that way since the Sixty's

It's all good.
