Installing 15t sprocket rant and questions
So I went today to attempt to put this thing on, and my first question: Is it normal for the 15 tooth to be so much thinner than the OEM sprocket? There was a lot of side to side action on the chain once when I got it on.
What I didn't even think about before installing it was that my chain, which I'm pretty sure is the original with 15k on it, is near it's adjustment limit. So once I put the 15t on I didn't have enough space to adjust it to the correct tension
Also, does 40ft/lbs sound correct for the counter sprocket bolt? I found two numbers in the service manual. 40 for the bolt and 80 for the 'drive sprocket nut" which I'm not even sure what that is, mine was a bolt.
