when putting on a new sprocket, the manual specifies a specific torque. with the handy torque wrench, is that specified torque applied to the nut on the backside of the sprocket, or the bolt itself on the outside? thanks
I have a quick question for anyone that feels like they might have an answer. I just wanted some opinions before I take the bike BACK to the shop. So heres the story, I went on vacation for a couple weeks at the end of June. Before I left, I had the local shop install a new rear tire I purchased and do an oil change. After returning from vacation, I went by and picked up the bike. After getting it home I did a QUICK inspection of the rear and everything SEEMED to be ok. I started the bike up and took it for a few warm up runs around the trails in my yard. During this time I did not notice anything out of the ordinary other than my chain not slapping as much as it used to (which was alot!) After about 10 minutes of this I decided to get on it coming out of a corner. The ground was straight dirt with no rocks ruts or debris. Pure acceleration (about 90%) with the throttle (no clutch pop) and PING! I pulled in the clutch because it sounded like my front sprocket blew. When I came to a stop and looked, my rear sprocket was severely bent, 2 of the mounts for the sprocket to the hub had broken and finally the chain guide broke the tabs off of the swingarm. So it is looking like Im going to need a new hub, new swingarm and a new sprocket minimum. If I get these from partsfish Im looking at $~800 which sucks after dropping $250 on it and riding for 10 minutes.... So I guess my question is whether or not this could be caused by the shop? Maybe poor alignment or the chain being too tight? Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.
